Columbia high end computing gets $32 million - not bad
The Workforce summary is not cheering, it seems to be saying they need to fire 5% or more of the workforce
The bit at the end about management of real estate assets is also interesting.
Ok - Explorations Systems - UP 76% - this is CEV and Constellations development (not Con-X, sorry)
Earth-Sun - UP 2%
Solar System - UP 2%
Universe - UP 0.1% - the decimal is in the right place there
Hm. $336 for HST MODA, and "prep for STS servicing in early '08". I will be very, very surprised if HST is serviced by the Shuttle in 2008. That's $1-200 million down the drain.
$443 million for JWST development.
GLAST and Kepler are in good shape.
SIM gets just under $100 million.
Big question is what happens to university programs (I'll talk about recently announced ROSES-06 Real Soon Now) and future missions like SNAP, LISA, Con-X and TPF
