Congress Does a Smash-up of US Science...again

The link above is to an interview of Ray Orbach, the undersecretary for science at the U.S. Department of Energy. Congress just slashed $400 million from the science - purely science - side of DOE's budget.

The money for ITER is just plain gone.

The money for the ILC is cut by 75%.

This Congress is just plain pissing me off.
