Actually that is not Obama's plan. See below.Gravity_Ray":6o6siftd said:One came up with a Moon, Mars, and beyond direction at the end of his term without any funding. The other came up with Asteroids, then the moons of Mars without any sort of logic.
This is Obama's plan. That's why people on here were complaining that he is destroying human space flight or whatever. In fact, Obama's original plan preserves HSF forever, instead of making it something to be destroyed by the next administration.The best thing is to get NASA to simply fund private enterprise with some seed money to do basic work in LEO. Getting cargo and then astronauts to LEO first. Then fund them with additional seed money to get them into cislunar space while NASA continues to fund scientific endeavors to increase our abilities with engines, and robotic missions to map out our solar system so private sector will know what is where.
Then get the heck out of the way so the private sector will do the job cheaper and faster.
