This is very exciting news. Several blog reports and this report from Bloomberg suggest that the Obama administration may be planning to escalate another space race, this time with China. Regardless of the merits of racing someone back to the moon, the race itself is bound to creat jobs and advance our badly deficient technology platform in all areas. In the 60’s this had a profound effect on our lives and on where we are today with technology, but we need to push forward again and this could help. It’ll be interesting to see how the linking of the defense space program and NASA will work, but the ultimate goal and the path there will be amazing. I can’t wait to watch. And this time we’ll all have a better seat for the show than the last time around.
