Lots of political trolling in a space thread. None of these people care about the actual subject matter, just bash trump for no reason.
Personally I think it's a great idea. NASA should go to space again.
Can't have the Chinese getting to Mars first, can we?

How is the planet doomed? Earth is an actual living environment that's currently sustaining millions of different species & strains of life. There's no point colonizing another planet if we're too stupid to take care of the perfectly habitable planet we already have. Otherwise, we'll just have the same people who are destroying this planet wreaking havoc on another planet (one which can't even sustain life yet, at that).

Remind me again why we need to go back to the moon? Something we miss? I'd prefer resources be allocated to a more productive endeavor.
I'm with you on this one. I really do not think it is worth all the expense to go there. I know the consumer will pay for all of this.

This is not so much about reaching the stars but I would guess more about preparing the public for a catch up in progress already made in secret and possibly a means of hiding the next set of secret missions which I suspect are beyond the average Joe public's comprehension. In my view we already have space fairing craft in operation and have already ventured beyond what the public understand! It is also interesting that this has come so soon into TRUMPOTUS's term and may reflect his wish to bring the Joe public partially up to date thus being perceived as the great disclosure one! I'm sure that there are things that TRUMPY is now aware of that he would love to tell about but he knows he can only go so far without himself being expired.
Hit it on the nail
