6:23 pm
problem. how to pay for all that. and while the foundation silicon valley has donated $6 million to jump start the effort. >> what we tried to do was send a strong pulse and a strong signal to both federal agencies and also private potential adopters, that this is something we think is worthy and it is time to move forward now. >> it is not nearly the $80 million required to get an early warning system in place in california. >> it is tough budget times, and like i said, there's nothing that motivates politicians like a disaster. and so, maybe it will happen before the large disaster, maybe not. >> usgs has a more immediate financial problem, funding cut 20% this year meaning it is an even greater challenge just to keep the systems that have in place and running. >> thankyou. get ready for some lunar excitement. it is not only a full moon this weekend, it is a super moon. that means the moon will doleful
