Submission + - James Webb Space Telescope Petition (sciencefriday.com)

TimeOut42 writes: The Science Friday with Ira Flatow, http://www.sciencefriday.com/program/archives/201107152, had a section on today about the funding problems with the James Webb Space Telescope and the potential for the program to be cancelled. The striking part of the program was the description of how close they are to actually finishing the project. It's almost like the Webb Space Telescope is being used as a political football to take a swipe at NASA.

There is a petition started that will be sent to the House and Senate asking that funding not be cut and the program completed.

What does that Slashdot community think? Keep it or cut it loose?

The petition is at change.org (http://www.change.org/petitions/do-not-cancel-funding-for-the-james-webb-space-telescope)
