Losing Sight of the Vision

Two Views of The Vision, Paul Spudis, Air & Space

"Marburger described a split between NASA and the White House during formulation of the Vision. NASA (led by former Administrator Sean O'Keefe, Chief Scientist John Grunsfeld and an internal study group within the agency) wanted a manned Mars mission (as it has for the last 50 years) while the White House (led by Marburger, his OSTP colleagues and some members of the National Security Council) called for a new direction and orientation of the space program. They favored a return to the Moon with the "mission" of radically changing the rules of spaceflight."
