Dear DPS Members,
We have been paying close attention to the activity in Washington regarding the sequestration and its potential impacts on science in general and NASA in particular. The AAS has joined with NDD-United in a statement on the negative impact of sequestration. See http://publichealthfunding.org/uploads/NDD3200Letter.Final.Feb2013.pdf
NDD-United has designated 14 February as a "Day of Action" and is encouraging people to make contact with their representatives in Washington. Please stay tuned for an announcement from the AAS on this activity, and please take a moment to participate.
Rosaly Lopes, DPS Chair
