Interesting find, Grayelf.
One little quibble...."fossil fuel rockets"???
Liquid Hydrogen and liquid Oxygen. THAT is what makes rockets go. (OK, I know....the Shuttle uses a solid fuel in the boosters...but, the three Main
Engines use the LOX/H mix). AFTER the launch, different chemicals are used to provide the hypergolic reaction to produce thrust. But, there are no
loads of coal, or anything.
I'm just having a little fun at your expense.
In all seriousness, I thought Obama was more progressive than this. IF he is intent on stripping NASA, then I will be very disappointed.
However, the other hand....IF there is, as you suggest, a revealing of hidden technology, then by all means I will be cheering on!!
