Do you realize that the $850 billion bank bailout — that sum of money — is greater than the entire fifty-year running budget of NASA?

Neil deGrasse Tyson

This seems like an appropriate quote for today. 

In 2012, NASA’s budget will be less than half a percent of the total Federal Budget. This also represents 35% of the total spending on academic scientific research in the United States.

Over the past 50 years, with little more than the pocket change left over, NASA has turned science-fiction into science-fact. Space stations, human spaceflight, interplanetary exploration - this is all reality now.

Imagine what we could accomplish if we started prioritizing science.

Chew on that for a moment.

Science is too big to fail, y’all.
