NASA Ends Plan To Put Man Back On Moon

An anonymous reader writes with this excerpt from The Times Online: “NASA has begun to wind down construction of the rockets and spacecraft that were to have taken astronauts back to the Moon — effectively dismantling the US human spaceflight programme despite a congressional ban on its doing so. Legislators have accused President Obama’s administration of contriving to slip the termination of the Constellation programme through the back door to avoid a battle on Capitol Hill.”
