Space Scientists Looking To Crowd-Fund Planetary Exploration 90 90

The Bad Astronomer writes "The White House budget for NASA in 2013 is bleak, with big cuts in many areas. None is worse hit than planetary exploration, which got slammed with a 20% reduction. Several top-notch space scientists have taken matters into their own hands, looking to create a privately-funded alternative for space exploration.

Astronomer Pamela Gay has more info at her blog, Star Stryder."
