On this, the 40th anniversary of Apollo 13, President Obama prepares for tomorrow’s big Florida Space Summit.
Obama’s proposed NASA budget will likely require drastic changes at the agency, and tomorrow he’ll lay out his plan and make the argument for it.
Today we’ll talk NASA, space exploration, and the space sciences. As the shuttle program comes to an end, what should we do next? SHOULD we be sending people back to the Moon? Should we be aiming for Mars?
And what are we doing? What interesting, inspiring things is NASA up to right now? What mind-blowing missions and technologies does it have in the works? And where does the commercial space industry fit into all of this?
