    Apod down for the count. No new Hubble pics. Science gets screwed again.

    America should be justifiably proud of NASA - this is humiliating.

    Yeah, for sure. I worked for 4 years in Israel and had a good buddy there, we are both hams and had a good bit in common, he worked for Intel in Jerusalem and that was where I was assigned as an outside contractor for Varian, my field being ion implanters and his field was instrumentation calibration.

    So I remember him saying how awesome Hubble was, he said, you guys can spend over a billion dollars on ONE telescope and that is almost our entire budget! Not quite but Israel would be very hard pressed to spend a billion dollars on ANY one project.

    Another thing the shutdown has killed: Most of the spacecraft data gathering, like Curiosity is dead in the water, that 2% they just found🙂
