Approval Ratings?

The National Science Board measures public attitudes about science and technology and they released their report today. You're probably betting that all of the excitement generated by the Emperor's plans for returning to the moon would make for some pretty strong numbers for space exploration.

And you'd be wrong.

According to the report, support for increased spending in scientific research is about as exciting as mass transit (38%). But how is space exploration doing? Just 14% are supportive.

Is that crickets we hear?
