Re: Don't understand

yes, because money. it's always that, along with the political prioritization of the day.

And until recently, that money was prioritized in projects that were "of a political nature". But not any more.

Maybe NASA needs a specific 'data archiving budget'? It would go very well with education if it all goes into a public accessible database. [and keep it in native format, too, and document the format for posterity - no filtering, no cooking, JUST the raw, unfiltered data, and a valid schema for it]
