Re: Obama orders a review of NASA's plan to return to the Moon

Funding for NASA isn't unlimited like in the 60s..So there has to be some give and take...

NASA can't spend a lot on low speed flight research, Reduce sonic booms for a future SST and set up a Lunar base with an eye to Mars with the budget it has..

So they will prioritize..with the Lunar program at the top of the save list..

I really wouldn't want to be studying Bumble Bee aerodynamics with NASA money right now..
