Yes he should triple their measly funding and add their increases to our overbloated defense budget. If he loves space this much he should do more than throw it the scraps of our science budget

NASA is among the best, if not the best, that has come from US.

>“We can land a rover on Mars, we can beat a pandemic,” Biden Kind of late for that to be honest. Pandemic has already gone through America and we’ve lost.

Increase their budge then. Otherwise, you won’t be next to land astronauts on the moon, it will be at least 1, possibly 2, other nations. I mean really, it’s 50+ year old tech that got you there in the first place. Are you guys telling me you can’t afford it again? Go to the Smithsonian and dust off the parts and retro fit it all. Aye Karumba.

There are two things that made me interested in space travel: Kerbal Space Program and SpaceX. Not to detract from their accomplishment with the rover, but NASA isn’t one of them. I suspect this is true for a lot of young new people here. I truly credit Kerbal Space Program and SpaceX for reinvigorating public’s interest in space.
