To the moon......and beyond!
I'm not sure what to make of it.
Obviously its an election-year stunt, but could it happen? Bush wants NASA to go back to the moon, first with robotic vehicles by 2008, then with humans by 2015 or no later than 2020. From there, on to Mars.
The critics think the same - election year stunt. They also ask about where the money is going to come from. Bush reckons he only needs and extra $1bn over the next 5 years - the rest will come from the current NASA budget allocations.

Erm.
Well.

Hooray! I'm all for it, IF it actually happens. Hell we went to the moon over 30 years ago and haven't sent anyone further than 400 miles since then. That's the distance from here to Vegas. We could drive further than we've sent astronauts in the last 30 years, in 7 hours......

(this still doesn't mean I think Bush is any good)
