After NASA's recent decision to suspend conference attendance, training, and travel for its employees and contractors, we're really starting to see the effects of the across-the-board, automatic cuts known as Sequestration.
The impact will continue to grow over the coming months, and we here at The Planetary Society want to highlight the effects this policy has on the lives of professional scientists and students.
Do you have a story about how Sequestration has impacted your career? Tell us. All names will be kept confidential (unless you tell us otherwise) but we'd like to share your stories with the world.
The more people realize that policy fights in Washington impact the lives of people every day, the more likely we can end Sequestration and restore some sensible budgeting to science in the United States.
