NASA moon base kept under raps till after election

quote:

NASA has secretly been working on a plan to develop a manned outpost on the far side of the moon, but the lofty plan has been kept quiet until after the presidential election, according to media reports.

According to Space.com, the plan has already been cleared by the Obama administration, but officials kept the plan under wraps until Barack Obama secured a second term in the Oval Office.

I hope this is true.

Advancing man's exploration of space is the reason that a lot of the little gadgets you play with today exist.

It was a crying shame when the shuttered the shuttle program without anything to replace it. And I was pretty pissed when they killed off our return to the moon. The United States should be leading the world into the exploration of other worlds. It his hardly a waste of money...but again...narrow minded people like you will certainly not be able to understand the advantages of a robust space program.

The better question is why wouldnt they.

Instead of wasting all those billions "nation" building in the shite holes of Iraq and the afghan desert...just think how much more Nasa could have done with that money to advance mankind's understanding of the universe around us.

I seem to recall many folks on here raising cane about NASA losing funding and ending the shuttle program. Now, NASA has a large new program, with fundiong to follow, and we are upset about that.

Im confused
