RocketAcademy writes "The 100 Year Starship Symposium wrapped up on Sunday. Friends are offering constructive criticism.
Senator Tom Coburn has some less friendly criticism. He wants to cut funding for the starship program as part of a cost-savings package.
Senator Coburn apparently hasn't done his homework, though. DARPA and NASA provided the initial seed funding for the 100 Year Starship Initiative, but the project is expected to find its own funding from here on."
