“Now, as the country faces another great expense in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, NASA has unveiled its proposal for making Mr. Bush’s vision a reality. Both the moment for embarking on this endeavor and the justifications for it seem odder than ever.”

“Can a nation with massive hurricane damage, surging budget deficits and a war to fight in Iraq really afford the high cost of manned space flights when robot missions might advance research about as much?
