I read an article on USA today called "Moon vets say Obama's NASA cuts would ground U.S." about how president Obama is cutting all the funding for NASA and canceled the return-to-the-moon program that was supposed to get us on the moon again by 2020. Even world famous astronauts like Jim Lovell and Neil Armstrong, who rarely talks to the public, are speaking out about Obama's space program cuts. Buzz Aldrin says its a good idea and that it will give money to the space taxi service which will get us to the international space station. But that mean the Russians will be the ones taking us when we have the capability to do so if Obama didn't cut NASA's budget. These budget cuts will give us third-rate stature for our space program, when we were the best in the world. I think Obama's plan to cut NASA's budget is insane and we should continue the return-to-the-moon program.
