    Why are you making the assumption that it is "politically driven"? Because you disagree with the results found? Have you bothered to read it?

    The center is funded through the National Science Foundation.

    Your kidding me right ??

    I've been working with NASA and their Contractors for nearly 2 Decades.

    And I live about 5 minutes from Johnson Space Center.

    Since 2008 Obama has been cutting funding to NASA and its Contractors, more specifically for their next manned space flight operations.

    Constellation was suppose to folow the shuttle with the Contract extending out to Companies like Jacobs, Boeing and Lockheed Martin.

    Those Companies have been laying off at a rate I havnt seen in 20 years.


    Now, Obama wants to corrupt NASA like hes corrupted so many other Federal Agencies.

    Having their funding go out to "legitimize" his twisted ideological views while thousands of Engineers and support staff head straight for the Unemployment lines.

    Of course its politically driven. Its no Coincidence thaf the report that focuses on " Inequality" is being released in concert with his rhetoric.

    Every government agency eventually becomes politically driven, as we have seen with the State Department, the DOJ, and the IRS. Same with NASA, which has now become just a massive and expensive bureaucracy.NASA Chief: Next Frontier Better Relations With Muslim World | Fox News

    WHAT am I kidding about? I have provided links showing that this study does not appear to have been funded by NASA, no matter what the headlines show; but for some strange reason this point is being pounded into the ground even though it is an imaginary "point".

    Get your years straight, Obama became President in Jan 2009, so he had nothing to do with 2008 funding and little to do with 2009 funding for NASA.

    I for some reason seem to remember lots of complaints about Obama throwing money around like confetti and now I'm reading that he's been cutting funding for those government agencies. Agencies which, if I remember correctly, can't create jobs because "government can't create jobs"

    Hatred causes some to erase the memories of words and actions which no longer agree with today's messages - words and actions they once supported.
    Proposed NASA Budget Cuts Spark Bitter Debate in Congress | Space.com July 18, 2013
    A NASA authorization bill drafted by the Republican majority of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology proposes to slash NASA's funding to $16.6 billion for 2014 — $300 million less than it received in 2013, and $1.1 billion less than President Obama requested for NASA in 2014. The bill — which authorizes spending levels but provides no actual funding — would roll back NASA’s funding to a level $1.2 billion less than its 2012 budget.

    Democratic members of the committee spoke strongly against the proposed cuts, which Republicans say are necessary under the federal sequestration cuts prompted by the Budget Control Act of 2011.

    "It is a bad, bad bill," said Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Texas), the committee's ranking Democrat. "The bill were considering today will hurt the NASA centers and work force, cripple the agency's ability to carry out all the responsibilities the nation has given it, and put NASA on a path of mediocrity. It gives me no pleasure to say this is a terribly flawed piece of legislation."

    Republicans insisted the bill provided enough money for NASA to achieve its main objectives, and said it was realistic, given the tough fiscal circumstances
    Now please show the reading audience how a REPUBLICAN-authored bill that cuts $1.1 billion from the amount requested by PRESIDENT OBAMA for NASA is an example of Obama "cutting funding"

    We'll see.

    Profit motive may work, may not.

    Bet money that it will be done in a way that makes only a few rich. And maintaining that control will slow the process.
