Obama and NASA
4/14/2010 9:43:54 PM
The President has indicated that he will eliminate the Constellation/Moon program, much to the dismay of such well-known astronauts as Neill Armsttrong.
As a heretofore staunch supporter of President Obama, I am afraid I do not agree with him in this case, although I do understand that a Mars mission would be studied for a manned landing in 2015, instead.
However, with the recent discovery of availaable water on the Moon, I feel that a Constellation mission would be one that would set the stage for using our lunar neighbor as a stepping stone of sorts for future visits to the red planet.
Besides, after all the hard work for the past half century in putting America at the forefront of space exploration and technology, I fear this new policy would greatly damage space technology as an important resource for the coming generations. [For example, it is highly probable that neither you nor I would be communicating in this manner over the internet now were it not for the technology that was developed for the space progtram.]
Talk is, too, that the United States would pay the Soviet Union to fly our astronauts up to the International Space Station.
Coming from the generation that saw President Kennedy - a powerful supporter of the Mercury missions that led to the Apollo ones - cause there to be pictures of Astronaut John Glenn orbiting our planet in space, there is somehow something wrong in my mind with the picture of a Jones paying a Barishnekov to fly up into space.
