Right, the 2012 budget.

February 15, 2011 - Reading time: ~1 minute

Not that we've gotten a 2011 budget.  So business as usual at NASA, including those whose projects got dumped at the end of last fiscal year (I hope you're still with us!).

Engineers at NASA: hang in there.  Reversal of fortunes is an everyday occurrence around here; engineers and scientists who work for the government make progress long term by making sure that good ideas remain in a state of viable dormancy during periods of starvation.  It works for bacterial spores, and it seems to work for us.
