    It's always nice to be carrying all four "ACES", when clueless-"conservatives" keep asking that same, dumb-ass question!!

    THIS was my only, other option.

    How can that be? Didn't Bush cut taxes by trillions?

    This is why you guys are so awful. From the very site you listed:

    "NASA's Constellation program – based largely on existing technologies – was based on a vision of returning astronauts back to the moon by 2020," the president's budget says. "However, the program was over budget, behind schedule, and lacking in innovation due to a failure to invest in critical new technologies. Using a broad range of criteria, an independent review panel determined that even if fully funded, NASA's program to repeat many of the achievements of the Apollo era, 50 years later, was the least attractive approach to space exploration as compared to potential alternatives.

    You see, you want to call this a "broken promise". Republicans don't even know what it means to go to the moon. Most don't know how far away it is. They only know they hate Obama. So if he rewrites policy, it must be wrong. Why? Because they hate Obama.

    I bet I could go through that entire list and at least 90% of those "broken promises" are pure bullshit.

    Next, you'll be telling us he's the anti Christ or he's spending 200 million dollars a day visiting India.

    NASA is being diverted entirely into a military project and it's program for going back to the moon and then mars were scrapped, and US space missions in the ultimate humiliation are now being run by Russians as there was no money to replace the space shuttles with new spacecraft. But don't worry if Obama is too much of a sellout to fund such an initiative China and Russia plan to go to Mars and mine it for billions or likely trillions of dollars worth of minerals (http://news.discovery.com/space/mars-prospecting-ores-gold.html) anyway.

    How come your link doesn't work? Because what you are saying is "bullshit"?

    Is this your link?

    President Obama’s NASA budget unveiled | Bad Astronomy | Discover Magazine

    The President’s Budget cancels Constellation and replaces it with a bold new approach that invests in the building blocks of a more capable approach to space exploration…

    [Emphasis mine.]

    I can’t say I disagree with much that’s written there. A lot of it is based on the conclusions of the Augustine commission, a blue-ribbon panel of experts appointed by Obama to look into NASA’s future plans and make recommendations.

    So I don’t see this as doom and gloom. I see this as 1) putting science and innovation first, and 2) freeing NASA up to do what it does best: explore the boundaries.


    In addition, the new authorization bill directs NASA to begin work immediately on a huge, heavy-lift rocket — which would be vital for any asteroid or Mars missions by astronauts — instead of waiting until 2015 as proposed by President Barack Obama in the space vision he announced earlier this year.

    The bill would also advance the development of spacecraft for deep space missions to as early as 2016, rather than 2025 — the goal that Obama set for the first crewed mission to arrive at an asteroid.

    It also allows the extension of the International Space Station's program through at least 2020, as Obama previously proposed

    Senate panel backs space shuttle extension - Technology & science - Space - Space.com - msnbc.com

    I don't understand how right wingers, who are so against science and scientists, would have an opinion on space exploration. Seriously.

    Let's ask the vets themselves, not msnbc and Obama admin bullshit. :clap2:

    CAPE CANAVERAL — President Obama's plans for NASA could be "devastating" to the U.S. space program and "destines our nation to become one of second- or even third-rate stature," three legendary astronauts said in a letter Tuesday.
    Neil Armstrong, who rarely makes public comments, was the first human to set foot on the moon. Jim Lovell commanded the famous Apollo 13 flight, an aborted moon mission. And Apollo 17 commander Gene Cernan remains the last human to have walked on the lunar surface.

    READ: Highlights of Obama's planned address
    READ THE LETTER: Obama NASA plan is 'devastating'
    In statements e-mailed to the Associated Press and NBC, Armstrong and other astronauts took exception with Obama's plan to cancel NASA's return-to-the-moon program, dubbed Project Constellation.
    Armstrong, in an e-mail to the AP, said he had "substantial reservations." More than two dozen Apollo-era veterans, including Lovell and Cernan, signed another letter Monday calling the plan a "misguided proposal that forces NASA out of human space operations for the foreseeable future."
    The statements came days before Obama is to visit Kennedy Space Center on Thursday to explain his vision for NASA.
