Boston Globe Garbles The Facts

NASA sets its sights on travel to Mars, Boston Globe

"Meanwhile, NASA officials have said the shuttle fleet will be permanently grounded in about 2010. Plans are underway to construct its replacement, the Crew Exploration Vehicle, which will be designed to carry at least 40 people beyond Earth's orbit and eventually to the moon and Mars." ... "NASA officials have said the Crew Exploration Vehicle will be smaller and sleeker, like a giant space airline service that can transport a large human crew to the moon and beyond."

Editor's note: A CEV crew of 40? "giant space airline service"? Who was this reporter talking to at NASA?
