Obama talks space (and funding) at White House event

President Barack Obama hosted a big science and astronomy event at the White House last night and took the opportunity to talk about investment in science, space and technology as a priority of his administration.

While he didn't directly say he was planning to comply with the Augustine commission's suggestion to add $3 billion a year to NASA's budget to allow for a more robust long-term exploration program, some there did feel he offered some strong hints that is how he is leaning.

You can read his remarks here.

Among the reporters recounting his remarks, and analyzing them, was Craig Covault. Covault wrote a piece for about the White House event.
