Lawmakers, administration clash over science funding

Abstract:
Lawmakers from both parties on Wednesday lamented the proposed fiscal 2008 research and development budget for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, while an administration official said NASA's future is at risk due to current congressional funding levels.

When a committee member broached the matter of nanotechnology R&D and its health consequences, Gordon said the committee will explore the issue over the next year. "I am very concerned that this field could meet something of the same fate as [genetically modified] grain," where the technology emerges before the public's faith and trust, he said.
