Senate legislation would return NASA to focus to space exploration


WattsUpWithThatIt’s still unclear exactly how lawmakers plan to transform NASA’s mission, but Republicans and Trump administration officials have said they want the agency to focus on deep-space missions and away from climate change research, which is a part of its Earth Sciences Division. That has created uncertainty about the fate of the Earth Sciences Division, which accounts for about $2 billion of NASA’s $20 billion budget.

How many people can we put in a moon base for $2 billion a year? Maybe we could have our own lift capability rather than hitching rides on Russian rockets?

Maybe we can afford to make NASA great again.
