NASA's Garver lists moon as goal for astronauts against Obama space policy

MarkWhittington (1084047) writes | more than 2 years ago

Moon 0

MarkWhittington writes "NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver delivered an address to the AIAA 2012 Space Conference in Pasadena, California that consisted of a full throated defense of Obama administration space policy and the direction of NASA. Garver was especially keen to defend the Obama space exploration effort that has replaced the Bush era Constellation space exploration program.

However Garver included the moon as a future destination for American astronauts, despite the fact that President Obama specifically ruled out a return to the moon in his April 15, 2010 speech at the Kennedy Space Center. This raises questions about the future direction of NASA space exploration and who is really determining it."
