A Budget Shave

At long last, there is agreement on a budget for NASA for FY11 (just six months into the fiscal year).  For NASA's science program, the final agreement can be viewed as either an increase over FY10 ($4945M compared to last year's $4469M for an increase of $476M) or a small cut compared to the President's original FY11 budget proposal ($60M less).  I have not seen details on how the budget will be distributed within the Science program, but the Planetary program likely to make out relatively well.
