Let’s Reach for The Stars Again, Mike Griffin, Washington Post
“The words are great, but the actions aren’t. In early 2005, about $110 billion was allocated to the task of returning American and international partner astronauts to the moon by 2020. Less than five years later, that figure has been slashed to about $70 billion, not enough to do the job. We’re willing to spend hundreds of billions of dollars bailing out failed enterprises, but we’re not willing to spend more than a half-penny of the federal budget dollar to support one of the greatest enterprises in history.”
