My name is Marshall Dodge a Freshman studying Captive Wildlife Care and Education at Unity College. The thought of space travel had always been something that I enjoyed thinking about but never really put too much time into. That is, until my Junior year of high school. My mom, brother, and I took a trip to see my uncle in Houston, Texas and we went to the NASA space station. This was also around the time the movie Interstellar came out, so I was on a bit of a space exploration high. I immediately looked for everything I could find on wormhole travel such as the Einstein-Rosen bridge that theoretically leads from a black hole to a white hole but I won’t get into that right now. Other than crazy black hole voyages I also took interest in NASA as a whole and want to look in more detail about what they do and is it not worth it like what I’ve heard people say. Specifically, this blog is about the issues and controversies surrounding the funding of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
