Trump comes out against NASA effort to return to the moon

President Trump on Friday said NASA should not be focused on going to the moon despite his own administration’s support for the effort, saying the agency should instead prioritize ’much bigger things,’ like going to Mars. The president’s tweet on Friday is at odds with his own directive from December 2017 that formally directed NASA to focus on returning humans to the moon.

A sustainable colony on the moon I feel is step one to getting to mars.

Hmm, I wonder what the moon station "Gateway" could be referring to... Totally not future plans to go to Mars or anything

The Moon is not an end it's the means to an end, the colonization of Mars!

The Trump bashing is getting ridiculous and desperate now, yes the guy is a bit loose but the left is just pathetic the way they carry on about every little thing about him.

Wait a few days and he will come up with a new mission like going to Uranus. The guy is defiantly demented.

I have already began a nice list of the people who should start living on Mars first.

We're so technologically far away from being able to that, why even bother pretending? Oxygen, gravity, and fuel. None have been solved. We can't produce oxygen in high quantities nor create artificially stable ecosystems, we cannot survive a long period without gravity, and we don't have the fuel to ship things into space constantly. We are like a tribe with a canoe wanting to sail around the world. We might just make it but we would have to sacrifice resources to fund just a few people to get stuck in a place where they can't do shit.

The title is misleading. Trump wants NASA to focus on Mars, which the moon is just a step towards that goal.

Nope sorry. Got to take care of the earth first. Start with a secure border. Then move on to homeless veterans and homeless US civilians. Education reform. Too much important stuff that needs to be taken care of before that moon/mars stuff. O gravity and radiation in space has been shown to be quite unhealthy to humans. Until workarounds are devised (with a lower budget required) the moon/mars should be on the back burner. Earth residents first.
