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.

    NASA's former glory...

    It's such a shame that Congress and the last few Presidents have played political football with NASA's funding. There's been no consistent directive for NASA, so we're left with some strange goal to encourage private commercial rockets & some telescopes... tsk tsk.
