Yeah, simple maths are fun with pie charts and a "space > olympics" axe to grind. Still, $2.5billion ain't exactly pocket change.

You always gotta play the Neil DeGrasse Tyson card... it's super powerful so of course you would. Remember, he wants glory for the American people, not us. Then I do kinda think of it as "if America is happy, some will be happy but if America is unhappy then everyone is unhappy".

I disagree. NDT is only interested in the advancement of science for the glory of ALL mankind.
Stupid glory of all mankind. Maybe they should give NASA that quarter of their budget solely to advance science and space exploration.

I've said it before, the future of space is private.

SpaceX is winning. 2nd place: Virgin Galactic.
Yeah but private space exploration just leads to the Tyrell Corporation and Firefly. fiddlesticks FIREFLY.

And fiddlesticks BSG too.

That's no joke. There are (gruesome) pictures of what happens when you don't heed this warning. Let's just say it's no way to get ahead of the game...

It's no replacement for a proper international program, but I guess it'll do.

It'll get Americans back into space quick and dirty ... honestly, though, do you see SpaceX pushing out to the moon, the asteroids, who knows where else? The only reason they're going with private companies is because they finally understand that they've lost the ability to manage a proper space program. Which is sad.

Oh, but there is more:

The bottom inset shows Curiosity's ejected heat shield still in the Martian air.

Yeah, I know that this is a "video" but here is one made up from the series of images taken by the bottom camera which helped to guide Curiosity to its landing. The first image is of the heatshield just after ejection.

I saw him play at a jazz gig once in St. Paul. Got to talk to him, too. Nice dude. He's also on Tom Waits' "Small Change" album.
