It's not just the NSA needing the reform.  Buy something from Amazon and watch what happens to your phone, your Kindle, your email.... it's ridiculous.  What's even scarier... they're being allowed to watch what you do on the internet...where you go... what website products you view.  And then they bomb you with competing advertising.  Same principle with a different set of circumstances.  Both just as obnoxious.  And we all thought 'cookies' were an issue!

YES! Our Curiosity rover found NO and NO3! (Biologically-useful nitrogen, that is.) More signs that ancient Mars could have supported life.

Space exploration has proven to not only to take humankind where it hasn’t been before, but also change the way we view our own world.

We live in a fantastic time to learn what lies within Europa’s deep untouched oceans, watch humankind set foot on Mars, and this summer we’ll witness for the first time in human history what Pluto actually looks like in high resolution and learn more intimate details about our famous little dwarf planet.

However, to keep the engine of tomorrow churning, producing innovative technologies and push us on the frontier of knowledge we need to double NASA’s budget. History shows that NASA will get us to where we want to go faster if NASA is well equipped and funded.

If you are interested in helping out you can do so in the following ways:

1. Take action today and write to your member of Congress right here: http://www.penny4nasa.org/take-action/
2. Share or Like this post to show your support.

If you still yearn for some inspiration, or more Neil deGrasse Tyson, we highly recommend checking out the video “We Stopped Dreaming.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbIZU8cQWXc

If you have a little more interest in where we got our original quote from then here’s the full quote from a talk Neil deGrasse Tyson gave at the Library of Congress for the House Science & National Labs Caucus.

NASA Administrator Gives Rafael Cruz An Epic Lesson In How Science really Works...

"Sen. Ted Cruz thinks NASA should spend less time studying the planet and more time finding ways to go out into space.
Cruz (R-TX), who is chair of the Senate Space, Science, and Competitiveness Subcommittee, addressed his concerns at a hearing Thursday on the $18.5 billion budget request for NASA’s fiscal year 2016. There, he asked NASA Administrator Charles Bolden what Bolden thought NASA’s “core mission” was.
“Our core mission from the very beginning has been to investigate, explore space and the Earth environment, and to help us make this place a better place,” Bolden said.
Cruz wasn’t satisfied.
“Almost any American would agree that the core function of NASA is to explore space,” he said. “That’s what inspires little boys and little girls across this country … and you know that I am concerned that NASA in the current environment has lost its full focus on that core mission.”"
