Via Bad Astronomer, a trio of op-eds in the New York Post on where NASA goes from here, particularly in the context of manned spaceflight:
- We need a modern Apollo program by Phil “Bad Astronomer” Plait;
- Orion and Ares — the future of NASA by former astronaut Tom Jones;
- Lost in space by Buzz Aldrin (whom you may have heard of).
The status of the Constellation program (especially the Ares booster) is causing no shortage of angst, it seems, but the big picture is of concern either way: insufficient funding, insufficient vision.
