Obama Outlines Bold Space Policy … But No Moon

The Bad Astronomer writes “In front of a mostly enthusiastic audience at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center today, President Obama outlined a bold, new space policy. It’s a change from his previous policy; the Constellation rockets are still dead, but a new heavy-lift rocket system is funded. He also specifically talked of manned asteroid and Mars missions, but also stated there would be no return to the Moon. This is a major step in the right direction, but still needs some tweaking.”
