It’s been over forty years since American astronauts walked on the lunar surface. Our space budget has been steadily eroded over the decades, with NASA’s priorities being redirected especially egregiously by the current administration.
In 2010, Barack so famously told [NASA head Charles] Bolden that NASA’s highest priority should be, “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.”
With priorities like these, it’s no wonder that NASA pays Russia hundreds of millions of dollars a year–and the United States of America does not have a vehicle for launching humans into space. It’s an embarrassment, and this administration should be held accountable.
