Obama Unveils Mars Program

Speaking at NASA's Operations and Checkout Building, Obama said the agency could not proceed in the "same old way." He said it needs to bring along commercial space entrepreneurs to handle transport missions to the international space station so the agency would be freed up to think and reach much farther. The ultimate goal is to land astronauts on Mars, he said, and "I expect to be around to see it."

Does anyone else see the glaring hypocrisy here? The Obama administration has nationalized the auto industry, nationalized the banking industry, is nationalizing the health industry, but wants to privatize the government's space industry?

And I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you!

  1. Ah! Whistler has entered a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind!

    And, yes. A cook book would be less destructive of our space program!
