NASA, huh? Since the halcyon days of Kennedy and the shuttle program it's sputtered slightly, thanks in no small part to unnecessary wars, poor economics and other earthly foibles. Also: explaining its purpose, especially as it relates to the layperson.
But that's going to change! Really! Or, at least it was until the budget was, ahem, affected earlier this year by a mighty stroke from President Obama's oft-not used "no, actually we can't" executive branch pen.
