Science Caturday: Antarcticat


Bad news kept coming for US scientists this week, as the National Science Foundation announced that they would cancel the U.S. Antarctic research program for this year because of the ongoing government shutdown.  The cancellation will directly affect over 50 scientists, grad students and support staff, and Stanley, a cat conducting important research on Antarctica’s penguins.  Sorry, buddy.

One thought on “Science Caturday: Antarcticat”

  1. My sympathy goes out to the people who will lose their jobs over this, to their families, to the suppliers whose products they might have bought, to the wholesalers those suppliers may have bought from. Also to the companies that should have been supplying the research and their shareholders … and so on. So many people lose … no one gains.
