Undecided explanatory comments of how this change will affect NASA and Manned space exploration: ________________________________________________________________________ “There are many who believe, some passionately, that most of NASA’s money spent on manned space flight has been a waste. Robotic space has high pay-offs, at far less bucks for the results. Manned (and even that term is not PC) space flight has been a massive make-work program for a few privileged companies. Romantic, yes. Eye-candy, yes. Spectacular, yes. Sometimes of political advantage, yes. Sensible, in the larger scheme of things? Now that would be worth serious debate.”
ATI encourages further participation from both the public and private sectors to continue this important and controversial debate.
ATI is planning a follow-up poll after the President’s April 15th conference on NASA’s future where he will outline his strategy for the next step in space exploration. Jenkins says, “It will be interesting to see if any opinions shift after the President details his strategy for the future of space, since those details have yet to be presented beyond his 2011 Fiscal Budget Plan.”
