Don’t Get Neil deGrasse Tyson Started About the Un-Science-y Politicians Who Are Killing America’s Dreams

As we’ve learned time and time again, when you need to hear someone kvetch hard about the state of science in this country, point your radio telescopes at Hayden Planetarium head Neil deGrasse. In the midst of the debt debacle, he responds to Bill Maher’s question about Washington’s possible assassination of the James Webb Space Telescope with a ranty explanation of how Congress is mortgaging the futuristic dreams Americans used to have. He ends with a good question: How far can science go in Washington when so few Congressmen are scientists?

See the full discussion here, and calm your Tyson-ish nerves with this relaxing Carl Sagan video.

End Of An Era of the Day: Space Shuttle Atlantis, manned by Commander Chris Ferguson, Pilot Doug Hurley, and Mission Specialists Sandy Magnus and Rex Walheim, charged into space this morning for the very last time.
Atlantis’s final launch was also the last launch of NASA’s 30-year Space Shuttle Program. “The shuttle’s always going to be a reflection of what a great nation can do when it commits to be bold and follow through,” said the Commander Ferguson just before lift off. “We’re completing a chapter of a journey that will never end. Let’s light this fire one more time, and witness this great nation at its best.”
The crew will spend 12 days at the International Space Station attaching additional parts, including a room filled with a year’s worth of provisions, and conducting various experiments.
Atlantis is scheduled to return to Earth July 20th.
Watch the launch footage below:
