Florida-- If you were to put NASA and baked goods in the same sentence you would probably think Milky Way, Saturn cake and chocolate chip Opportunity cookies.

Saturday, some scientists are doing just that, putting on a baked goods sale to raise money for NASA's US Planetary science projects.

In this American land of milk and honey, the NASA program received significant cuts in the President's new proposed budget.

Scientists and other NASA employees are planning bake sales, car washes and demonstrations in an effort to save the planetary science project.

Friday, NASA announced the cancellation of the X-ray telescope mission, the Gravity and Extreme Magnetism Small Explorer because of budget woes.

So don't be surprised when you see men and women in lab coats outside your favorite store offering to sell you a Milky Way cupcake.
