Astronomy at the White House

First Jazz at the White House, now Astronomy at the White House:
President Obama, having spent much of the day pondering Afghanistan, spent a few seconds Wednesday night looking through a telescope at a double-star system roughly one quadrillion miles away... It was 400 years ago, the president told the students, that Galileo built his first telescope and began probing the universe. "Galileo changed the world when he pointed his telescope to the sky. Now it's your turn," Obama said. "Don't let anyone tell ya that there isn't more to discover.
No hints though on NASA funding
