Off to Mars. BRB

So, Bush did it. He announced a new (long overdue) direction for NASA. To summarise, there are three goals:

  • Complete the ISS by 2010
  • Develop a new spacecraft, the Crew Exploration Vehicle, by 2008 with the first manned missions beginning no later than 2014.
  • Return to the moon by 2020

I hope it works out, but this seems like a bit of a re-election sound byte. Exciting that the ISS will be finished soon as I can collect more patches.
