Down-to-Earth choices, editorial, LA Times

"Human exploration of space is such an epic notion, conjuring images of both a science-fiction future and a real-life history of giant steps for mankind, that it's hard not to be swept up in the romance. President Bush certainly seemed to have been having "Star Trek" fantasies when he delivered his vision for returning astronauts to the moon, and eventually sending them to Mars, during the run-up to the 2004 presidential election. Afterward, Bush dropped his proposal like a sizzling meteorite, having scarcely mentioned it since."
