Worth the Cost

"NASA's plan to send astronauts back to the moon and eventually to Mars is not just exciting and visionary. It's a smart investment that would maintain U.S. leadership in space exploration while returning significant scientific and technological benefits."

"In the short term, the plan could provide a much-needed economic boost to the hurricane-ravaged Gulf Coast. NASA has facilities in the region with good-paying jobs."

"Over the long term, missions to the moon and Mars could inspire a new generation of American scientists and engineers. It could spur discoveries and innovations that would help the United States keep its edge in the global economy."

I couldn't agree more.
