Question: then why did Obama tell the New Muslim head of NASA that his MAIN priority was to establish relations with other Muslim Countries and to encourage Children in the courses of math and science? Is it any wonder Libs and Obama are dangerous for the Safety security and freedom of America? http://www.resistnet.com/profiles/blog/s...

I have no problem with credit going to Muslims, Catholics, Jews, Germans, Russians and any others without whom the US would never have gotten into space or to the moon or stayed in space. But to single out the nationality or religion "de jour" at the expense of the rest is wrong. And Obama (as well as past politicians) are talking out of the sides of their mouths. They want NASA to be the leader in space but then don't want to pay for it! Then they cry when we have to go to the Russians (the ones we beat to the moon, remember?) with their ever increasing prices to hitch a ride into space. Don't misunderstand me. I have nothing against the Russians or their great space program. They were the first into space after all. They are the only nation to maintain continuous access to space. (The US was earthbound following the cancellation of the Apollo/Skylab projects awaiting the then behind schedule space shuttle. And now history will repeat itself as we retire the space shuttle and await private companies to fill the gap (I have no problem with the private sector taking over the responsibilities of manned launch operations, in fact I'm strongly FOR it! I just don't like the time delay). Look, either FUND NASA to do what it does best, open new frontiers and new technologies that have a very positive ripple stimulating effect on the economy (more so than any government 'bail out' plan!!) or pack Nasa up and get out of the space business. It's estimated that project Apollo to reach the moon returned 7x's what was invested in it back to the economy. And Nasa uses less than a half a percent of the federal budget, so in the scheme of things it's a trivial cost! Isn't it about time the USA made a consistent, definitive and inspiring goal and long term commitment to a manned space exploration program? THAT is what is going to inspire our youth to take math, engineering and sciences!!

Cady Originally Answered: China already has an EM Drive on board its version of the International Space Station, does it means China will beat NASA in next Space Race?
I think it's their version of the Ion drive, which we used on a couple of probes (Deep Space One and DAWN). Deep Space One was launched almost 20 years ago, and functioned for 3 years, after doing fly-bys of an asteroid and a comet. DS1 and DAWN are of a very similar design, and work well - but the thrust of the engine is about like the weight of a piece of paper on your hand.... It's lacking in close-quarters maneuvering...

NASA is responsible for the nation's civilian space program and aeronautics and aerospace research. It's not a military organization. And no word about defense. This little snippet (and the use of "Libs") shows how serious the question is. But keep on trying; I'm sure you'll find ways to show the closet Muslim president endangering "your" America.

Engaging children in math and science is par for the course. As for the Muslim world we have many prestigious institutions that can bring those in the Muslim world out of their shells. If they feel that they are a part of the world they will be less impressed by crazy bearded guy screaming jihad.

"When I became the NASA administrator -- or before I became the NASA administrator -- he (President Obama) charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering," NASA Administrator Charles Bolden in an interview with Al Jazeera

So, you're actually arguing that Obama should NOT try to get children excited or interested in learning math and science. Yeah, *that's* good for America.

Milford Originally Answered: Unmanned space exploration?
First of all, I would like to say that I am a big believer in manned space exploration. I feel that robots can get lots of great science results, but there must still be progress for humanity in its ability to become a starfaring species. A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, and we're on step 14. We should definitely continue on this front. However, for scientific gain, unmanned missions are much more efficient. Firstly, robots can survive in much more extreme conditions than humans. The radiation environment around Jupiter would make manned exploration of the Jovian system nearly impossible for any duration. Robots only need electricity to "eat" and don't need breathable air or water to keep them going. This cuts down the amount of weight needed to launch, which keeps costs down. Look at the launch vehicles used to send our fastest space craft yet (New Horizons en route to Pluto) and the Apollo missions. The Atlas/Centaur launch vehicle is much smaller and requires much less fuel to go directly to Pluto than the Saturn V did to go only to the Moon. This is because all of the water, food, life support systems, equipment, etc necessary to keep 3 men alive for only 2 weeks required all that extra energy just to get it away from the Earth. Robots don't need all of that. Another major advantage with robots is that they can have a much longer mission duration than manned missions could. Take the Mars Exploration Rovers, Spirit and Opportunity, for instance. Their stated mission duration was 90 sols (about 92 Earth days). They have been working and returning valuable scientific data for over 2 years and they're still going. This does not include the cruise time getting to Mars. Robotic missions also present less risk in public support because they're cheaper and failures don't cause nearly the public outcry or spectacle that losing human life in space would cause. Imagine if Neil Armstrong had crashed the LEM during his historic descent into Mare Tranquilitas. Everyone around the world would have witnessed it live on TV, and most people would have questioned wheter or not we should be there, etc. When Mars Polar Explorer crashed because of a mixup in use of Imperial vs. Metric units, it was a black eye to NASA, but nobody died - only a machine. Since these missions can be performed with less cost and smaller rockets and less materials, more of them can be flown. NASA's budget is already miniscule on the scale of our government's budget, and this would not allow us to be doing very much out there in the outer solar system, maybe one mission per decade if even that. As it stands, we have several missions active on Mars, as well as probes en route to or active at Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto. Even Voyager is still alive and kicking at over 100 times the distance from the Sun as Earth, telling us about the nature of the space environment at the edge of our Solar System. We could not have kept humans alive in space for their amazing 30 year trip. I think that the major goals of manned space travel are similar but definitely separate from those of unmanned space travel, and that both should be continued, and with more effort than we are putting into them today. While manned space travel is about learning to survive in space and eventually other planetary environments, for purely scientific missions, robotic travel is the way to go.
