a Joke right?
obama must of been joking when he asked Nasa to send a shuttle to asteroid or mars instead of the moon right. He would be pretty stupid to think that it would be less expensive than going to the moon.
That's very true! Besides if we set up in the moon first and develop fuel and building materials from resources there the cost of further missions can be halved! We need to set up in the moon BEFORE trying to get to an asteroid or Mars. It's simple logic.
