Popular Mechanics Analyzes the Candidates

I suppose I should not stand on a political soap box - BUT -
if you live in the USA you in the middle of much political debate.

Where NASA and the thought of going to the Moon, Mars, and Beyond is going will be tempered by what is happening in the real world, both local and global.

The Popular Mechanics article has some links where you may choose to add your 2 cents worth to the candidates.

Will be interesting to see what will be left to look up at after the elections. The return on investment may well need to contribute to solving the energy crises.

Maybe someone will come up with a way to send a mechanical spider to space that can spin a solar net that will capture the energy from the Sun and space and know how to repair itself when hit by space debris. You too may be able to catch some rays.

Thanks for looking up with me.
