Moon might happen

So, to revive a story from about a month ago, perhaps Bush is going to announce another round of moon trips, and maybe a trip to Mars. This story from from Associated Press on indicates “senior US administration officials” talking about it. This story from Rueters has Bush proposing a permanent manned base on the moon. This story from UPI cites more senior US administration officials, saying that to pay for it “NASA’s space shuttle fleet would be retired as soon as construction of the International Space Station is completed.”
