Advocate for Basic Research at D.O.E. Labs and NASA After the Deficit Reduction Debacle in Washington 

The recent deficit super committee debacle in Washington means possible debilitating budget cuts to your D.O.E labs and NASA missions. Please get ready to write, email, phone, your congressional representatives and senators. It’s your tax dollars, folks.

Here’s what’s at risk:


D.O.E.:


Argonne


Ames


Berkeley


Brookhaven


Fermilab


INL


Jefferson


Livermore


Los Alamos


NSCL


Oak Ridge


Pacific Northwest


Princeton Plasma Physics


Sandia


SLAC

US/LHC


The many other aspects of the D.O.E. Office of Science


NASA:


Hubble (Yes, there is still a budget for Hubble)


Fermi

i2
Goddard


Chandra

nh
Herschel


JPL

nk
Kepler

nsofia
SOFIA


Spitzer


Webb


WISE

All of the other missions, current and future.

Everything is at risk. The U.S. future as a leader in basic scientific research is at risk. Remember the Superconducting Super Collider? Killed off in 1993 by the dimwitted (then Democrat dominated) Congress?

The tax dollars are yours. Visit the D.O.E lab and NASA mission web sites. Look around. See if you think that these are worthy of your tax dollars.

Read back through past entries in this blog, you will see that it is not all High Energy Physics, Astronomy, and rocket science. It is also Biology, Chemistry, Medicine, Genetics, Clean and Renewable Energy, Ecology, Climate, you name it, our great labs and NASA missions are there to help make our lives better.
