In the article "R&D budgets: Congress leaves a parting gift" (News & Comment, 31 Oct., p. 536), the 1987 appropriation for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration was incorrect. Total funding for the agency is $10.4 billion, not $7.95 billion, as stated. The budget includes money to cover construction of a new space orbiter and shuttle operations. Research and development funding stands at $3.1 billion, as reported.
