Who Cares About the Partners

Lost in Space, Scientific American

"If NASA limits the number of shuttle flights to the station to six or seven--enough to finish the core assembly--the freed-up funds could bolster both human and robotic exploration. NASA could accelerate the development of the CEV and new heavy-lift rockets intended to launch components for interplanetary missions as well as modules for the space station. A 2004 study commissioned by the Planetary Society advocated exactly this strategy; one of the leaders of the study team, Mike Griffin, became NASA's administrator in April. We urge Griffin to put this plan into effect."
