Re: Obama Space Plan: Return to Moon: "No Go"

The title is misleading on this article. Obama has said no such thing. The Augustine commission (panel referred to in article) has made 7 different recommendations on how to proceed with NASA's future. Only 2 of those axe returning to the moon. OBama has made no decision yet. He may choose one of the recommendations or come up with an entirely new plan.

The actual significant part of the Augustine Commission report is that all 7 recommendations have the Ares/Constellation program being axed and alternative launching systems being found.
