Previous Entry nasa budget Feb. 26th, 2006 @ 08:40 pm Next Entry

the sum of nasa's expenditures from 1958 - 2005 (47 years) is $369.885 billion.

the 2006 (1 year) budget of the Defense department is $419.3 billion

no real point here. just occasionally I hear people I otherwise respect panning the "huge amount of money" we spend on NASA, and I think that's crazy talk.

When NASA spending figures are featured in the media, they tend to be in largish chunks. I.e. $XX million dollars for the Far-Out Observatory or somesuch. Which gives the kneejerk conservatives an excuse to vent their spleen.

On a totally unrelated topic (i do agree with your post, btw), your name came up on the ATITD forums today. I popped back into the game last week to see how the 6-month-long (ha!) Tale 2 was going, and have been poking around on the forums. Evidently, this past weekend, Teppy allowed all quit and expired players to log on and hang out for the "wind up to the end" party. On the forums, Jaby asked whether you (or a few other well-known Tale 1 players) had been round.

I don't currently have a computer set up with the client on it. I mostly use my work computer these days and can't install arbitrary software :/
