As anyone who works with the budget in an early childhood setting knows only too well, money never stretches far enough.

Best Images and Videos From 3-Mile-Wide Asteroid Toutatis' Flyby There was a great deal of excitement from yesterday’s cosmically close shave as 3-mile-wide asteroid 4179 Toutatis zipped by the Earth.

Astronomers have calculated that its odds of crashing into our planet over the next 600 years are effectively zero.
NASA-backed fusion engine could cut Mars trip down to 30 days High performance access to file storage NASA, and plenty of private individuals, want to put mankind on Mars. Now a team at the University of Washington, with funding from the space agency, is about to start building a fusion engine that could get humans there in just 30 days and make other forms of space travel obsolete.
