"According to the historian Davis Logsdon, who has been sifting through mounds of photographic evidence at the University of Minnesota, the nation apparently once held the view that investing in science and even math could yield accomplishments that would be a source of national pride.

"While Logsdon has not developed a complete theory to explain the United States’ pro-science stance during that era, he attributes some of it to the liberal views of the President at that time, Richard M. Nixon."

That the phrase "liberal views of the President at that time, Richard M. Nixon" can be said with any seriousness at all demonstrates how far the country, not just the Republican party, has moved to the right.

9 years ago next month, NASA launched a spacecraft toward a planet. Everything has worked according to plan, but now that it has almost arrived, there is no planet there!

The amount of email I have stored on the exchange server at work exceeds the total capacity of all the disks on my old UofC Astronomy dept's VAX780 by 30%

And of course it's all important.

Attention, northern Illinois locals:

I have a combination coffee & espresso maker that needs repair. The espresso side is fine, it's the plain-old coffee making that has the usual "no heat" problem. Does anyone know how to find a shop that will fix that?
