Scaling back Bush’s promised manned moon landing left Obama in the cold of deep space, but now compromises are being made with NASA. “Human travel to Mars is now back on America’s space agenda. It is just one of many course-corrections that President Obama will likely be forced to make to his January proposals for big changes at NASA.

They still see human exploration to specific destinations in space as a compelling frontier – not just for the nation but humanity, too.”
