Obama Hammers The Last Nails Into The Coffin Of NASA

Yonatan Frimer, copyright 2010

Obama revives the dangerous/failed shuttle program, kills the new rocket program, gives up the moon to the Chinese, uses NASA to do PR work with the Muslim world, and monitors “Global Warming”. What’s more, his administration expects private companies to do the work for them without proper incentives. NASA might as well be broken up after this! I don’t think it’s going to survive the damage.

“The act will mark a sea change in the way Nasa does some of its business, particularly in the realm of human spaceflight.

The legislation calls for $1.3bn to be allocated to the development of commercial crew services over the next three years.

The money will seed private companies to design and build rockets and capsules capable of delivering astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS).

The legislation also signals a formal end to the Constellation programme begun under President George Bush that sought to return humans to the Moon with a new spaceship called Orion and two new rockets called Ares 1 and Ares 5.”
