Economic contributions by planetary and space sciences in Arizona

There's a recent report out that I missed, showcasing the economic contributions by Arizona's astronomy, planetary, and space sciences community (APSS). With UA's Planetary Sciences dept and ASU's School of Earth and Space Exploration, this report includes strong geoscience components.

The report, prepared by the Arizona Arts, Sciences, and Technology Academy (AASTA),
shows APSS research in Arizona in 2006 returned a total dollar economic impact or $252.8 million and described what's needed to keep these programs vibrant.
