    Neil DeGrasse Tyson defends NASA

    I know we don't like to post YouTube clips, but this one is great, and I'm not even American.

    Gotta love Neil DeGrasse Tyson. I have to look for my Pluto Files book now.

    I'm not sure I agree with everything. For starters, the whole "future is now" attitude is significantly older than the space program.
    But I wholeheartedly agree that it's not matter of not having enough money, but rather how we spend it.
    We need to start dreaming again.
    To quote the wonderful, if somewhat inaccurate, film The Dish, "This is Sciences chance to be daring."
    Let's not miss that chance.

    Its nice to see him defend NASA. What a pleasant change to trust experts and not micromanage them or put them out of business. If only folks here would do that.
