Submission + - Obama aims to ax moon mission (orlandosentinel.com)

DreamingReal writes: "To quote Jim Lovell, "we just lost the moon". White House insiders and NASA officials are saying the Obama Administration is planning on killing the Constellation program:

"When the White House releases his budget proposal Monday, there will be no money for the Constellation program that was supposed to return humans to the moon by 2020. The troubled and expensive Ares I rocket that was to replace the space shuttle to ferry humans to space will be gone, along with money for its bigger brother, the Ares V cargo rocket that was to launch the fuel and supplies needed to take humans back to the moon. There will be no lunar landers, no moon bases, no Constellation program at all."
