Did you ever have that "must kill the president" feeing? I had that, today.
In a cost-cutting move prompted by President Bush's moon-Mars initiative, NASA could summarily put an end to Voyager, the legendary 28-year mission that has sent a spacecraft farther from Earth than any object ever made by humans.
The probable October shutdown of a program that currently costs $4.2 million a year has caused consternation among scientists who have shepherded the twin Voyager probes on flybys of four planets and an epic journey to the frontier of interstellar space.
$4.2 million??!! Why doesn't NASA just team up with BoingBoing and various Trek fans and raised the monty themselves? And how in god's name does a budget with billions of dollars of wiggle room for Iraq come up short when it comes to Voyager? FUCKING VOYAGER, people! Grr, growl, etc.
