Since I see no tag for sarcasm, I can only assume you meant what you just said.
Constellation would have had us return to the moon, and still might before it’s all over. Along with this program being cut, the administration will not only surrender moon exploration/exploitation to the Russians and the Chinese, we will also lose our ability to place any satellite in close Earth orbit ourselves. I’m wondering just what Russia or China might charge us to perform that service. Then of course there is India, surely they would charge lower than the going rate. Wouldn’t they?
NASA’s funding is being cut for want of about $4 billion dollars, roughly the same amount of funding that ACORN seems likely to receive.
Priorities my friend, priorities.
I had hoped that both the responders to my post would notice the extra !!!’s as sarcasm.
