.gov news...

Last X-43A Launch is today. I've heard NASA is ending the X-43A program in order to focus more on the president's goal of making it back to the Moon and then to Mars. Sounds like a good idea in theory, but given the current technological limitations of the existing programs... ending our major hypersonic engine research program doesn't seem like the best way to do this. Heck, we don't even have a viable shuttle replacement past the conceptual stage yet.

4 more members of Bush Cabinet resign. So much for a boring non-transition-transition from Bush's first term to his second term. All of these in addition to Ashcroft and others. What does it mean... I don't know, although I suspect it means more of the same from Bush, just with new mouths. I study my own bit of politics, but I leave stuff like this up to Erik, Dave, Pearl, and others who are much more intensely political.

Finally, yes, I do have one more photo gallery that needs to go up. I'm working on it...
