Space Panel Finds It Too Costly to Send Men to the Moon, Mars

Hosted by  • 

NASA has big plans to send humans back to the Moon and Mars, but lacks the money to meet its goals, according to a blue-ribbon committee formed to advise President Obama. The President appointed former Lockheed Martin Chairman Norman Augustine to head the review of America's space program. His Human Space Flight Plans Committee has released its executive summary, which concludes that NASA is on an "unsustainable trajectory." Astronomer Jonathan McDowell is with the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
