As in all government endeavors ...if there is no profit motive there may be less incentive to do diligent and quality work.

Small slips like this got astronauts killed and almost doomed the Hubble to a useless pile of junk.
Perhaps this will spur NASA to get their act together. Seems like we had a passel of delays with the James Webb. May be time to kick ass and clean house.

It may be time, but you won't see it with the democrats in power.

It is weird that space science is now a political issue for Republicans, is anti science part of their dna?

... But what about the extensive political funding and jobs and votes?...

Politically, anything beyond that is just an irrelevance, or at best a 'happy coincidence'...

Remember they are Dixiecrats a/k/a Bible thumpers first and foremost, NASA might just prove that their hole-y book is a truthful as Faux news.

The Republican War on Science

Motivated Rejection of Science
Abstract

Some scientifically well-established results—such as the fact that emission of greenhouse gases produces global warming—are rejected by sizable proportions of the population in the United States and other countries. Rejection of scientific findings is mostly driven by motivated cognition: People tend to reject findings that threaten their core beliefs or worldview. At present, rejection of scientific findings by the U.S. public is more prevalent on the political right than the left. Yet the cognitive mechanisms driving rejection of science, such as the superficial processing of evidence toward the desired interpretation, are found regardless of political orientation. General education and scientific literacy do not mitigate rejection of science but, rather, increase the polarization of opinions along partisan lines. In contrast, specific knowledge about the mechanisms underlying a scientific result—such as human-made climate change—can increase the acceptance of that result.

Joes's not the problem with your gas prices, not when
Chief executives from the largest oil and gas companies received nearly $45m more in combined total compensation in 2021 as compared to 2020 amid the steep rise in gasoline prices across the US over the last year, a new report states

US gas prices are over $4 a gallon. These oil CEOs took home over $20m

And that's not the only problem with fuel prices as Kushner and the Saudi crown terrorist prince also have their fingers in the pie as well.

Nobody cares about Jared: How long can Kushner get away with it?

Saudis’ Biden snub suggests crown prince still banking on Trump’s return.

Yep, we've seen the border news
.
All about Abbot wasting billions on enhanced border checks and a new wall and razor wire.

And he's done nothing to ensure there isn't another major power outage in freezing weather.

Even Super Joe can't rescue us from the mess of the Trump-Kushner administration. We're doomed!
