What Bush Did - and Did not say

17 September 2004: The real cost of space - More exploration requires consensus and commitment, OpEd, Huntsville Times

"Now another president, George W. Bush, says it's time to unleash America's technological know-how for further exploration. But note that the popular idea that Bush has buckled America up for a trip to Mars isn't quite what he said.

As noted in "New Moon Rising" by Frank Sietzen Jr. and Keith L. Cowing (Apogee Books), which will be reviewed in Sunday's Times, Bush's message focused on a return to the heavens, not a specific mission, not even about going to Mars at all.

People in Huntsville may have a sharper focus about the need to move forward than elsewhere."
