The Debate About The Future Of Human Spaceflight – 30 Years On, Marcia Smith, Aviation Week
Will NASA’s newest plans languish as well, or are we finally ready to move out on the next phase of human exploration? Can we avoid diversions like the Asteroid Redirect Mission? Will Congress sustain the level of funding it provided for NASA in FY2015 — $549 million more than the President requested? Is that enough to make real progress? The “Journey to Mars” hype associated with the Orion test last month seems to have been effective in educating the public that NASA has not, in fact, gone out of business, but won’t the public wonder what happened when this year and next year and the year after that pass with no more Orion flights?”
