Whenever there is a major announcement by an American President concerning important government programs, pretty much all of the media jumps in with coverage. President Obama recently made some major changes in plans for NASA and the normal script was followed. But when it comes to some things maybe people who are a bit more interested in the subject and therefore hopefully more knowledgeable on the subject should be found. So here are some articles on the plan from lesser know outlets.

A theoretical astrophysicist’s blog on ScienceBlogs

Bad Astronomy blog

My opinion is that a lot of what President Obama laid out are very good ideas. But I still think that doing some really original research on a new approach to returning to the moon would be a very good idea.

Agree completely on going back to the moon. I was born in 79, so I’ve only seen grainy footage of it and have a hard time understanding the type of excitement that the whole process generated. I think sometimes science needs a little extra push, which these recommendations along with increased public and private investment would certainly give the industry.

It would be very interesting to see any changes to the surface of the moon as well as how far our technology has come when it comes to communication for the astronauts whom are there.
