This is a blog devoted to the U.S. space application and the return to the Moon. In some tactics, the long run is reminiscent of the moonshot days of the 1960s. The new rocket would have an Apollo-like capsule on top notch. Astronauts would first fly in that ship in 2015 but remain in Earth’s orbit, with a moon landing by 2020. After there, astronauts would assemble a base camp and sooner or later journey to Mars. But, sadly, most of this AP report is rather disparaging, it can be not a hatchet career, but it does paint NASA as old, fatigued, a bit lacking in emphasis. Let’s hope they are wrong. The only thing in this report that has me really frightened is this aspect about the existing and soon-to-be budget natural environment:The two presidential nominees and countless in Congress say they want to hold the shuttle flying past the 2010 retirement date mandated by the Bush administration. But undertaking so would be high-priced, and granted the recent money meltdown, enormous shelling out on NASA in the future won’t look likely. I’m nervous about that as effectively as funding for the relaxation of the Moon, Mars and Outside of system. In last week’s presidential debate there was a telling moment when the moderator challenged each candidates to clarify how the credit score crisis would alter their priorities, and neither of them had an response. I’m frightened that whoever wins in November, NASA could possibly be element of that answer..
