Defending NASA's Budget

Via our buddy Stan at TYWKIWDBI, this is a very interesting video about the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and our nation's recent decline in the willingness to fund it.

The 'narrator' is Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, the Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the Rose Center for Earth and Space, and a Research Associate in the Department of Astrophysics at the American Museum of Natural History.

He is also a great "science communicator"... a.k.a. someone who can translate the very complex into something easy to understand. If you are like me, you have likely seen Dr. Tyson on his numerous appearances on The Colbert Report or The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
