“Congress and other nations are likely to judge NASA on how well it manages the cost and development of the space station, said Keith Cowing who runs the online watchdog site “When real planning for a lunar base kicks off, the space station will have truly come into its own,” Cowing said. “The International Space Station will be a big issue that paces the development of a lunar outpost. It won’t be like other NASA programs; I don’t think Congress is just going to hand over a blank check when it comes to a lunar outpost.”
