Is this the end? NASA manned moon mission ruled "unsustainable"

An Obama-requested, blue-ribbon panel found NASA's Constellation program (with the goal of putting man back on the moon, and eventually, Mars) is on an "unsustainable trajectory." The program has $100 billion in funding for the next decade, but needs $130 billion to make it says the panel.

Will the program get canned? You decide. Obama's popularity is sinking and foreign wars, a depressing federal deficit and "bruising battles over health care" puts Constellation in serious jeopardy.

About Me

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
