Re: Obama orders a review of NASA's plan to return to the Moon
Iraq and Afganistan alone are getting 170 Billion, and they're both substantially more hospitable than outer space is. They actually have atmospheres.
To be fair, as a rule, no-one shoots at you in outer space, and roadside bombs are pretty much impossible.
I believe in a better world, so I love Star Trek. I have to live in this one, so I love Battlestar Galactica.
