President Obama,”I am 100% committed to the mission of NASA and its future.”

Details: Obama Remarks at NASA on April 15, 2010…

The President outlined his goals for NASA as the shuttle program comes to an end. The President will increase NASA’s budget by $6 billion over the next 5 years as it transitions to maintaining the International Space Station with Russia’s help and boosting more private and commercial involvement for low earth orbit missions. The president will move forward with the development of rockets and a vehicle that can take manned space flights to asteroids and to Mars. Instead of returning to the Moon the President sees more opportunity in focusing on deeper space exploration.
