First step to landing on an asteroid and then Mars completed successfully. Well done NASA

Hope the funding lasts.

Agreed. I also agree with Neil deGrasse Tyson that NASA's budget should be doubled. I believe that NASA is one of the very few government bureau expenditures that pays much in the way of dividends: increasing knowledge, funding the creation of technological wealth, spurring education in the sciences, etc.
