Wednesday, Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson and NASA head Charles Bolden presented speeches on the importance of science funding in our country to the U.S. Senate Committee of Science. Only 4 out of the 25 members of the Senate Science Committee even bothered to show up.
Neil deGrasse Tyson... You're my hero. You were a hero before, but that you got James Cameron to see the light (er lightS--a.k.a. stars!) in a historically-accurate manner, you are even MORE so! I love the movie Titanic. I'll pay close attention to the scene when I view... :-D
