Worrying About Who Gets Back First

A new hope for Obama NASA plan?, Orlando Sentinel

"The most heated exchange came when U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Virginia, asked Bolden which country -- the United States or China -- would send humans to the moon next. Bolden started to respond by saying it didn't matter -- because the U.S. already has been there -- when Wolf cut him off. "Well it does to me," he snapped. "It does to me, and I think it matters, with all respect, to a lot of Americans." Bolden then said he thought NASA would "get back first" with Obama's plan. "I think we stand a pretty good chance of getting to the moon much quicker than we would have with the Constellation program," he said, stressing the plan's focus on developing new space technologies."
