DailyDirt: One Of These Days, Alice… Boom! POW! Straight To Mars!

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Depending on how you look at it, the current state of space exploration can be seen as dismally underfunded — or as the most amazingly productive in history. Unmanned probes are checking out all sorts of interesting destinations in our solar system, but manned missions have lately been limited to orbiting the Earth. The unmanned space race is generating plenty of fascinating science, nonetheless. Here are just a few interesting developments in the field of space exploration.

By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

Re: NASA's former glory...

Political football with NASA funding has been the norm from day one.

X spacecraft part is built in Y State so Congress critter Z can say he “brought home the bacon” when trying to get re-elected.

Repeat for every other congress critter and you end up with a bloated wasteful NASA that can not get jack done without wasting lots of money.
