NASA at work
Here's NASA doing more stuff that looks like a lot of fun.
We'll be talking a lot about the future of NASA, of course. Personally, I'm sort of on the fence about Obama's plan for human spaceflight, but I'm cautiously optimistic. The program needs a jump-start, and it could be that getting the private sector involved is a necessary step for pushing ourselves to the next level. But I hope the expertise of NASA's employees is not lost in the transition.
In any case, going to an asteroid should be pretty cool.
