Finally NASA Does Something Right (Bold New Approach)

http://www.nasa.gov/pdf/420990main_FY_201_ Budget_Overview_1_Feb_2010.pdf
Much in line with the recommendations championed on this website, NASA really seems to have made a hard turn in the correct direction to achieve a meaningful and lasting and expandable space logistical infrastructure toward a true spacefaring civilization:


1) It jettisoned the Constellation program
2) It extended the Commercial Orbital Transport (COTS) program to include a crew capability and funded it at $6Billion...Way to go NASA, finally some support to private industry
3) It more than quadrupled the annual budget to deal with finding and cataloging Near Earth Objects from about $4m to about $20m by adding $16m/year...Finally some responsible action.
4) $7.8 Billion over five years for "Funds the development and demonstration of technologies that reduce
the cost and expand the capabilities of future exploration activities, including in-orbit refueling and storage." and "Demonstrates a broad range of key technologies, including in-situ resource utilization and advanced in-space propulsion."
5) Doubled the amount being spent on Climate Change / Earth Monitoring
6) 3.1 B in Heavy Lift & Propulsion Research
7) Actually articulates expansion of Human civilization into space, and precursor missions to Asteroids: "Expansion of robotic precursor: Led by NASA’s Exploration Directorate, this program will send robotic precursor missions to the Moon Mars and its moons Lagrange points Moon, moons, points, and nearby asteroids to scout targets for future human activities, and identify the hazards and resources that will determine the future

course of the expansion of human civilization into space."

This is the end for all space development efforts by the U.S. Period. Wake up and smell the coffee.
