NASA budget - bad news

I mean, REALLY bad news.
The House-passed bill covering the rest of the FY 2007 budget chops NASA funding $550 million from the amount proposed by the Bush Administration, which had already been under attack as a virtual zero-growth budget that hit space science especially hard. “It's a double whammy," said the Planetary Society’s Louis Friedman of the $16.2B budget. "First the science underpinnings to the NASA exploration architecture were removed; now the whole enterprise seems to be collapsing."
