Copernicus on a Budget

Human curiosity has recently been defunded. In 2011, the Obama administration cut NASA’s budget by 20 percent. In spite of this, NASA has has achieved many accomplishments in the last year. They discovered running water on Mars this year, and, just last week, they discovered that at one point Mars had an atmosphere capable of supporting life. However, some of the more peculiar projects have been abandoned in the face of budget cuts. One of these oddities was the satellite LISA, which would have been sent to orbit the Sun and look for evidence of other universes.
