    We must look to set up permanent, self-sustaining colonies on the moon and other planets, to ensure the survival of our species. We already know about past Mass Extinctions caused by impacts with other large objects from outer space. We should also bring along the seeds of other existing species, to insure their survival as well. So far, we are the only species in known Earth history to have the capability to do this and, it should involve all of the world's Space Agencies in this noble effort.

    IF we are talking about giving up on space exploration then it is BAD!
    IF we are talking about moving forward and taking the next step then lets quit talking and make it the best, and safety program on earth!

    Yes, CNN... It's all evil President Obama's fault for bankrupting the United States and failing to live up to the promises George W made but didn't pay for...

    One wonders what the reporting would be if President Obama had expanded the NASA budget... at a time of ballooning deficits, 10% joblessness, and a lagging recovery?

    Considering that Kennedy was all for equal rights which adventurely allowed obama being half black and half white to achieve what he achieved, it almost sounds like Obama is kicking Kennedy in the nuts, cause Kennedy's other big thing was the space program.
