Nice Presentation, But Where’s The Budget Sheet?

The whole world is duly talking about NASA’s public announcement of their intent to return to the moon – that’s good copy, right there. However, not everyone is being quite so optimistic, even though they really want to be – if they can scrape up the cash to actually go through with this plan, will it be at the expense of the big science that the Agency does so well? It’d suck to miss out on seeing black holes eat stars.
