Spaceflight Report Due Soon....idea of sending astronauts on deep space missions to near-Earth objects


www.spacenews.com

WASHINGTON — With an expert panel’s final report on options for U.S. human spaceflight expected to be released the week of Oct. 19, NASA and White House officials are said to be coalescing around the idea of sending astronauts on deep space missions to near-Earth objects and potentially the moons of Mars.

A draft version of the final report, requested in April by the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama, is circulating within the White House and NASA.

Interesting report that covers a posable turning point , one way or the other , as to if the US will be leading the charge or will lose out to some other ambitious country .

The report also covers some of the road blocks facing NASA and maned deep space flights with regards to funding .

I for one hope that there is someone in the administration that has the foresight push for a maned space program .

and one of these, dubbed “flexible path” focuses not on returning to the Moon but rather on sending astronauts on asteroid rendezvous and Mars flyby missions.





Not returning to the moon???




Another administration official asserted that options that include returning astronauts to the Moon “are not sellable to the public or to the president.”


No moon base!! That makes absolutely no sense.

It's been well over 30years since our last moon mission and now we are going to jump into deep space???

Pres. Obama will never OK men going to the Moon.
Just a hunch.
But you could ask him I suppose.
He was asked to release advanced technology and didn't know what to do.

How right you are to point this out .

Just why do you suppose one would want to skip the moon ? Perhaps they already have a base there in the form of blk op soon to become public knowledge , seeing how all these other nations are now sending probes there nows a good as time as any to go public , or one could hope anyway

its nasa's job to waste money and appear like they are actually doing what they claim they are doing. the reason you are never going to see sensible exploration on their part is because they are just a cover organization to make it look like they are actually trying to make progress. All the progress is being done behind closed doors and under lock and key by the secret space programs run by the military industrial complex.

China, Japan, Russia and the European Union still desire a moon colony. The United States will loose out, in terms of economics and scientific study, is an American moon base is denied.

Don't we have a public space program by now? Why are we still relying on corrupt NASA? All they give us are lies and doctored photos, i'm surprised everyone keeps paying them...

Why go to the Moons of Mars? If your going to go all thatt way you may as well go to the surface or Mars?

i am certain there is a recent article about denying any Mars Mission by astronauts...the reason is they would be unprotected from the high energy cosmic radiation.

ergo the asteroids or Martian moons would also be a no-go for a live crew


[i just don't understand why a downsized magnetosphere couldn't be created around the Mars bound living quarters w/ lander & surface habitat]

Once again another strange thing mention by NASA . Why would they go all that way and stop at one of Mars's moons ?

Also with all the hype that Mars gets just how many people even know Mars has a moon ?

This report is full of " strange " comments .
