Roll-over, stop snoring, for Science

The Lunar Science Institute, NASA's new Lunar Science collaboration modeled after the popular Astrobiology Institute was first out the gate in rewarding grant monies, last year, to a bunch of guys who intend on spending all day in bed. Sounds like quite a gig, that is until you actually try to stay in bed all day.

Was this what Senator Barack H. Obama (D-IL) was referring to when he said NASA didn't
"inspire and excite" Americans any longer?

The Galveston County Daily News spelled out the human interest side of the equation on June 21, in Researchers looking at effects of space travel.

Details on your tax dollars at work can be found when inquiring about awarded solicitations for research funding from the LSI website. The program is overseen by the Biomedical Research and Countermeasures Program within NASA's Office of Biological and Physical Research. Got all that? To be jointly funded by three of the Central Office bureaucracies, by NASA, ESA & CNES, the International Long-term Bed Rest Study, underway since 2003, must be worth the costs, which , after all, can't be very much.

I wouldn't think so, either.

Sweet dreams.
