Over at an earlier posting about Kerry’s voting record on NASA, Bill Turner has supplied the text of an email message he received from the Kerry campaign about the candidate’s view on space programs. There’s not much detail in the message, and the link provided to a December 2003 speech he gave at Stanford mentions NASA only in passing.

Is this because Kerry has a fondness for x-ray astronomy, or is it because the Chandra X-Ray Observatory Center is located in Cambridge, MA?
