Next year's NASA budget is poised to force premature cancellation of either Curiosity or Cassini -- the agency's flagship missions. Funding decisions get made behind closed doors, but projected figures reduce Cassini's budget in 2014 by almost half, and half again in 2015, making it impossible to fly. Even funding for analyzing data will be "restructured," according to NASA.

Congresspeople are generally all idiots when it comes to NASA. The Giffords lady was good on the issue before she got shot. But now, not so much.

I was figuring though that with the sequester now relaxed that NASA would no longer be forced to kill Cassini. Is that wrong?

@oralloy,
I don't know, but I perceive that most of our congressmen are con artists who want to praise NASA while cutting its budget.

I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.
