The Future Of US Space Exploration

Just as we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of Americans landing on the moon in 1969, the news comes that any expectation of returning to the moon, which President Bush had as a goal for the year 2020, was being pushed back to no earlier than 2028.

This  is unacceptable,  and Senator Bill Nelson of Florida has meanwhile suggested an extension of the space shuttle beyond 2010 so that American astronauts don’t have to go on Russian space missions to reach the international space station.

It is amazing to me the shortsightedness that exists in this country toward the exploration of space, and I hope President Obama will address this issue soon in a positive way.
