From Yahoo! News: Senators to NASA chief: Go somewhere specific
President Obama’s budget proposal would axe NASA’s planned trip to the moon. So where should NASA send astronauts? The long-term goal is to send astronauts to Mars, but what are good shorter-term objectives?
Here are two items that caught my attention regarding a future trip to Mars:
- Using inflatable spaceship parts
- Technological advances that would cut travel time to Mars down from three months to “a matter of days.”
On a humorous note, NASA has a graphic that shows possible destinations to send astronauts in upcoming years. I’m not sure that “Sun” is all that good of an idea.
Grace and Peace
