War is an expensive thing


The
U.S. government has decided to slash its science budgets.

Despite public announcements that the U.S. needs to spend more on science, or else lose technological ground to other countries, the government has closed down some key technology projects.

Instead, spending on the Iraq war and Afganistan was increased by $39 billion.
