Robert Longley, who is the About Guide for US Government Info, got a surprise recently, when his blog NASA Says Cannot Afford to Track Asteroids, was commented on by US Astronaut Rusty Schweickart.
Rusty made some excellent comments. Go over, read the blog, and see what the astronaut had to say. Now, the US Government wouldn't waste taxpayer money, or would they? Let us know what you think about this and the astronaut's comments.
