A Closer Look
I've mentioned NASA's ESAS plan in the past, those of you who are interested in space exploration may have heard about the plan in the media as the 'Return to the Moon', or seen it called 'Super Apollo' or 'Apollo II'. To be honest, this program really excites me, it's about time that we (as a nation) made a strong committment to return to exploring space, and not just the tiny fraction that we can see from Earth orbit. For those of you who didn't (or don't want to) download the rather jargon-heavy ESAS press kit, there's a pretty good article about it here. It doesnt gloss over the details like some of the newspaper reports do, but it's a bit easier to read than most of the 'official' publications.
