    In the proposed 2013 budget, NASA's planetary exploration division was given a $309 million cut (about 21%). This kind of cut prevents NASA from pursuing the most important missions to Mars and Europa (not to mention anywhere else). Missions like Curiosity would be a thing of the past.
    So, 309 million... in other words... PBS-like percentages of government funding... What was that, .00014% of our domestic spending accounts for the 300 million to support PBS? Why are we talking about this? Triple the funding for both NASA and PBS and then we're really looking at the future!
