Obama To End NASA Rocket Program?


Posted December 23, 2008 - By Frank Meyer

President-elect Barack Obama reportedly wants to end NASA’s Ares rocket program, the endeavor to build brand new, high tech rockets for future space travel, and keep the current space shuttles around a bit longer.

Yes, according to the latest reports, NASA and President-elect are not seeing eye-to-eye on the space program, and Obama is considering some drastic moves. The fact that NASA has had several problems in building the new Ares rockets and have gone way over budget certainly doesn’t help.  So Obama’s team has been working on what to do given the major budget issues the space agency is facing.

Though he stated during his campaign that he was in favor of space goals, including NASA getting a man on the moon by 2020, a base on the moon, and a manned mission to Mars, if Obama decides to end the Ares program, NASA will have no way to get astronauts up into space. And that doesn’t bode well for our chances of finding new alien civilizations…and destroying them.
