Comment Cuts to UK astronomy (Score 3, Insightful) 149

The UK Science and Technologies Facilities Council is busily slashing funding to much of UK astronomy. I guess this article is great for the powers that be to point out the UK doesn't need to spend money to e.g. stay as a partner in the Gemini Observatory when they can get results comparable to Hubble for 20 grand!

We all agree on the necessity of compromise. We just can't agree on when it's necessary to compromise. -- Larry Wall
