In the annual division of the funding pie, NASA and the Department of Energy get more, while the National Science Foundation gets less — but what does it all really mean for the nation's research programs? NPR's Ira Flatow and his guests examine science spending in the recently approved budget bill.

Guests:

Dan Greenberg, author of Science, Money, and Politics. Contributing editor, The Lancet

Maxine Singer, President emeritus, Carnegie Institution of Washington. Chair, Committee on Science, Engineering, and Public Policy, National Academies.

Congressman Vernon J. Ehlers (R, MI), chairman, Subcommittee on Environment, Technology and Standards, House Science Committee, U.S. House of Representatives.
