Barack Disses Human Spaceflight

In a phone interview with the Houston Chronicle, Obama "said, the next president needs to have 'a practical sense of what investments deliver the most scientific and technological spin-offs — and not just assume that human space exploration, actually sending bodies into space, is always the best investment.'"

Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, said "I intend to pursue an ambitious agenda in both space exploration and earth sciences. . . I want to support the next generation of spacecraft for a robust human spaceflight program."

Barack does not support a balanced program of human and robotice exploration. Email, Fax, and call Obama at (866) 675-2008 to tell him why "sending bodies into space" is a good investment.
