  • Trump Tweet Appears to Throw Cold Water on NASA Moon Push

    NASA's crewed moon drive was spurred by a directive the president signed in December 2017.

    There are probably some frantic emails flying between NASA headquarters and the White House right now.

    In a tweet today (June 7), President Donald Trump appeared to signal a lack of support for NASA's current push to put people on the moon in the 2020s — a push that he officially kicked off in December 2017 with the signing of Space Policy Directive 1 (SPD-1) and backed with a proposed funding increase just last month.

    "For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon — We did that 50 years ago. They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defense and Science!" the president tweeted.

      To pay for a bigger money cannon!
      They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.

        Every time he does something like this I think, "What's his angle?"

        Then I stop myself and thing, "Oh wait, he's a moron."
