    This is my first news post ever. Kinda interesting. Seems like NASA didnt search the Moon very well if they thought it was dry for 40 years [​IMG]

    Obama will oppose Moon drilling because of what happened in the gulf.

    Ugh, Obama's an idiot.. He already canceled the Constellation Program (which was basically half my dream to see it happen); I just hope he gets voted out of office before doing any more damage to NASA (if possible, which I wouldn't doubt).

    That's interesting, because it makes the Moon even more attractive to live on (at least for a while, until the Sun sucks it up together with the Earth, Mercury and Venus). Hopefully they find out more soon [​IMG]

    Obama is one of the worst leaders ever. He plans on stopping a war that's been going on for centuries, but he can't stop an oil spill? THE LULZ.

    I wouldn't say hate him, but he is holding back the expansion of our knowledge about other planets...quite drastically too. It's now looking like America won't be going to the moon for at least 30 years let alone Mars. The world of will have to rely on another source for it's interstellar travel.

    I heard somewhere people calling Obama "Oblahblah", heh. Kinda fits as the dude seems to love to hear himself speak.

    True Dat. He is ruining our space program, and more (Not saying anymore [​IMG] ). Seems all he does is talk about doing things, and not backing up the otherwise useless hot air.

    Ironic since it's BP's problem that the oil spill happened, not Obama's. And I am pretty sure it was good old Dubya who signed the contracts to allow drilling in the Gulf of Mexico so I find it rather hypocritical that anyone would slander Obama yet not criticize Bush for allowing the contract. That aint Obama's problem at all, it's BP and Bush's fault.

    Yes, maybe, but it's not Bush's problem anymore. Obama's in presidency now, and it's his job to fix it. But you know, I was just giving my two cents, I don't really care.

    Everyone is willing to blame the people doing the actual drilling, but no one seems to blame the people that required the oil for their cars, houses, etc, because demand is far greater than supply. Besides, if it didn't happen now, who's to say it would never happen at all? Plus, it has been known that other countries have tried to drill "diagonally" outside of the U.S. into it for that same oil.....because..... those spots were currently not being drilled by the U.S., and drilling diagonally is far more dangerous than drilling vertically.

    Wanna know something else? By not drilling for the oil, the supply goes down, meaning the demand increases, and the price for the oil will go up as well. If Obama was really concerned about the drilling in the Gulf, then why was it let to continue (under his leadership) until a problem actually occurred? So, in a sense, it is Obama's fault, not just because with leadership comes all the problems with it, but also because it was ignored until something happened, of which now he blames those it involved rather than himself who let it continue.

    agreeing with dsgamer on this. Nasa's budget is absolutely huge, a bit under 18billion for this year. ES, JAXA, CNSA and the RFSA all have budgets under 3 billion.

    I agree with DSgamer64. NASA does have a big budget and with all that money you'd think we'd know something new by now, but we really don't know all that much. That's one of the reasons why I'm going to create AI conscious robots that can be sent into space and give back daily feedbacks to do what Nasa has a hard time doing. I'm head over heels in love with outer space and I won't let anyone ruin my dreams because they suck at their jobs.

    Congratulations! You guys now know that space-exploration is extremely expensive! And until that quantum teleporter/space elevator/alternate-yet-cheaper source of fuel comes out, it will stay that way. Maybe some of you should realize that this is mainly driven for exploration, and not just economic purposes.. It is unfortunate we have not a private company doing this, so that way politicians who don't have a degree or know virtually nothing in the subject could not harm the processes of space exploration...

    yeah, because pouring billions into space exploration is a completely smart thing to do when your country has its hands full with other problems that could use the money. exploration isn't a priority, NASA should never have had such a large budget in the first place Too many problems within the US that could have used the money, yet this year and the year before nasa is on its biggest budget despite a crumbling economy.

    Exactly my point. We could be using that money to plant more trees for all the polluted areas or paying for land for the animals' homes we took away from them. So many things this nation needs. So you're right, congratulations to me for always knowing space exploration was expensive but isn't at the top of the list of America's needs [​IMG]
