Jeff Barr Has A Plan...
by M. David Peterson
Apparently NASA plans to cut one of the two Mars Rovers from it's budget. But Jeff Barr has a plan to help save it...
The second plan is a bit different. What if we just raise the freaking 4 million bucks ourselves and simply give it to the team? What would happen if we showed up at NASA HQ with a big plywood check (backed up by real money of course)? Could they take it, and would this make a difference? Does anyone know?
I just registered savetherovers.com and would be happy to use it as part of an organized effort to do something remarkable. I would also be willing to pitch in $100 as my part of the $4 million. That means we need just $3,999,900 more.
I'm in Jeff! Anyone else care to join the effort? I'll contact Jeff and see how he plans to facilitate the volunteer/donation effort and report back the result...
Count me in, though let me also pose the question of what the $4M is for.
