The mere mentioning of going to Mars is ridiculous when the manned-moon missions has been scrapped and manned space mission have been severely cut back.

This is no more than a political stunt to boost his ratings. He has no intention of spending money that could be going to the fat and useless.

He duped the American once and he'll keep on doing it because the people just love to get duped on. Why else is he and his cronies in power?

Well the outcome wasn't what I was hoping for, but he did say he believed we would reach Mars in his lifetime.

Obama: Americans to Mars within his lifetime


President Barack Obama predicted Thursday his new space exploration plan would lead Americans beyond the moon and to Mars within his lifetime. "I expect to be around to see it," he declared.


Needless to say I am disappointed by the vaugeness of this response. No Mars any time soon. For now we will work on propulsion systems

That's what pisses me off. "Sure, we'll go to Mars, as long as it's privately funded and I don't have to duff up any cash for it." Lame.

And we'll visit Mars "in his lifetime". Whhhhooooaaa, Barack. Easy, Biscuit. Don't go too far out on a limb with that prediction. How old is he? Of course we'll be on Mars before he dies; that could be 60+ years from now.

I can frickin' WALK there in that amount of time.
