The end of an era?!

Sad news that only now got through to me:

Obama cuts NASA budget so much to allow for a reduction in the US deficit, that not just the manned Mars mission, but even the manned Moon mission are not going to happen for a while.

Sad but true :'(

Meanwhile, just a thought… can’t ESA buy the developed Ares technology, that would otherwise just be gathering dust? (just don’t forget to convert to the metric system ;o) !)
