This was a little iffy right before the elections, but the budgetary inertia tends to cross administrations, so we felt that there was real opportunity here to make a difference.
With the re-election of the President, our job just got easier. The budget being put together right now will be the budget presented in February. We need to make an impact on it and get buy-in on NASA's missions to Europa and a Mars Sample return now, we can't depend just on Congress.
We've sent over 16,000 letters so far. Let's get thousands more.
Remember, this is a very small amount of money we're trying to restore, though it has big consequences for NASA's mission capability. We can make a difference, the Administration needs to know the public is behind this.
