Wow this shocked me. Senators actually want to increase NASA’s budget. The Houston Chronicle reports that some senators think that a $15.5 billion dollar budget increase is too little. Cool. If this is the case, the space program isn’t dead after all, which is great. I mean we owe a lot to the space program, from computers to velcro. It is important that we continue to fund it. But will we get back a sizable return? We’ll just have to wait and see.
