Obama Appears to Have Shifted His Position on NASA

The wording’s a bit vague, but it reads a little more “space friendly” than the previous statement.

It’s still a bit vague, but it seems less likely that he’ll put the CEV on hold now.

Personally, I think the ability to change your views when presented with additional information is a good thing.

You know flip-flopping is a sign of weakness, just like being a POW.


No mention of the Ares V or the return to the Moon, but it is nice to see that he will keep the Orion. I hope he releases something about his policy on the return to the Moon and missions to Mars.

According to this NPR story, Obama’s stance hasn’t been made exactly clear on the space program. His campaign also didn’t provide any comments for the story.
