Destruction of space was evidently next on Obama's "To Do" list! Even the first man on the Moon, famed astronaut, and American hero, is criticizing Barack! Armstrong: Obama Hurting Space Effort Politico http://www.politico.com/click/stories/1004/armstong_obama_hurting_space.html Former astronaut Neil Armstrong has issued a strongly worded rebuke of President Barack Obama, criticizing the president for proposed revisions to the U.S.' space program. Armstrong, along with astronauts James Lovell and Eugene Cernan, called the proposal devastating in a letter obtained by NBC News. Read below for the full text: "The United States entered into the challenge of space exploration under President Eisenhowers first term, however, it was the Soviet Union who excelled in those early years," the letter begins."Under the bold vision of Presidents Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon, and with the overwhelming approval of the American people, we rapidly closed the gap in the final third of the 20th century, and became the world leader in space exploration. ... "When President Obama recently released his budget for NASA, he proposed a slight increase in total funding, substantial research and technology development, an extension of the International Space Station operation until 2020, long range planning for a new but undefined heavy lift rocket and significant funding for the development of commercial access to low earth orbit. Although some of these proposals have merit, the accompanying decision to cancel the Constellation program, its Ares 1 and Ares V rockets, and the Orion spacecraft, is devastating.
