re: NASA's Next Mission: Deep Space
For goodness sake, the search for knowledge is not a waste of money. Besides, NASA's budget is miniscule compared to other money gobbling black holes that are contributing to the US's deficit. The military alone gulps down more cash in one year than NASA spent in the first FIFTY years of its existence.

You really did not have to do a Slide Show on this, now did you? Just imagine how disappointed Sheldon and the guys will be. They don't watch 'Penny-Vision". And please remember, they have a larger prime time audience than Letterman, Leno and Conan combined. Think about that.

re: NASA's Next Mission: Deep Space
Lee I was thinking the same thing, but the Star Trek fan in me objected. :) All kidding aside, don't you agree that we should try to understand our universe? Striking the balance can be difficult but there are a number of places money for the things you mentioned can come from besides NASA. Do you really think we should abandon missions to outer space?

re: NASA's Next Mission: Deep Space
With a 15 tr4illion dollar deficit why are we wasting this kind of money on an acti8vity with very little return other than pure space science? If we put this money into mass tran,education ,or infrastructure it would post a good economic return.Other than space communications and earth data NASA is a big black money hole.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
