Okay, Sorry, at the moment I haven't a link, I just saw it on the news, but apparently Bush will announce his 'big plans' for NASA next week, apparently they'll be going back to the moon, and he wants a permanent base to be set up.

Damn. I can't find a link.

I really just heard the news, but I can't get a link, anyone else have one? It'd be appreciated.

Bush Plans Major Space Announcement

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Buoyed by a successful landing on Mars by a robot explorer, President Bush plans a major announcement on space policy next week that may lead to sending Americans back to the moon, congressional aides said on Thursday.

Nearly a year after the shuttle Colombia exploded on reentering the atmosphere, sending NASA into a deep spell of melancholy, Bush is expected to outline a sweeping vision of U.S. space leadership.

He is expected to propose a new lunar initiative that could lead to a mission to Mars in the long term, said the sources, who asked to remain unidentified.

White House officials declined to comment. Bush is scheduled to be in Mexico on Monday and Tuesday so any announcement is not expected before Wednesday.
