    Isn't it ironic that Obama honors Neil Armstrong but defunds NASA?

    Obama's tumblr page offers Neil Armstrong a tribute but one of the first things he did when he became president was to give NASA the funds that it needs to continue the space program.

    He did not unfund Nasa...That is an old wives tale. NASA still goes on...were you paying attention to what is going on on Mars?

      Hellooooo! He stopped the constellation project and the shuttle mission.  The Mars project is the tail end of a project that existed before Obama.  Hellooooo!

      Obama did not put another manned space exploration plan in place.

      Really? What about the space launch system (SLS) and the Orion spacecraft? http://www.nasa.gov/pdf/664158main_sls_fs_master.pdf

      Yes, let's tell of those out of work engineers here in Texas who are seeing shrinks because they are considering suicide as they can't find work now that the shuttle program is gone and nothing is replacing it. Some of America's brightest destroyed.

      It was not NASA's decision to cancel constellation and the orion spacecraft is unmanned.  Jeez, koolaid drinkers.

      The initial Orion test launch will be unmanned. It is however absolutely intended to be a manned craft. Constellation was over-budget, under-funded,  and behind schedule.

    From NASA Watch - "However, that break begins with some hard choices - most notably, the outright cancellation of The Constellation Program. Started shortly after President Bush announced his "Vision for Space Exploration" in 2004, Constellation was the umbrella activity for what eventually became development activities for the Ares launch vehicle family, the Orion crew module, and the Altair lunar lander. All of this now comes to a halt." http://nasawatch.com/archives/2010/02/o … n-for.html
    Every time we ask quaestions about Obama's destroying of America - we get the same old Liberal Kool Aid drinkers coming to his defense. I'm starting to think it is just a mere 3 or 4 of the same hubbers who actually support the Obamanation of our country. Great Question Cassie.

      I don't support the Obama administration any more than you do. But I also do not support partisan attacks based on misinformation. Cassie is wrong. Obama ended a bad program, not the entire manned space program and he has NOT reduced NASA's budget.
