Obama’s Science Budget

Great news coming from Obama’s 2011 proposed budget. It appears that both the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will get major funding boosts. NSF is proposed to receive an 8% increase in its budget and the NIH could receive a 3% boost. While the increase is more substantial for NSF, the NIH remains the better funded agency.

With funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and this news,  it is definitely a good time for science! (well, except for those scientists at NASA).
