US needs new deep space Agency, Apollo astronaut says

RATE THIS! +5
Posted in Science on 12th Dec, 2012 02:36 AM by AlexMuller

NASA should be scrapped in favor of a new agency, one with the sole objective of furthering America's exploration of deep space. So says Harrison Schmitt, the last man to set foot on the moon, in a proposal published online today (May 25).

 

Schmitt, a member of Apollo 17 in 1972 and later a one-term U.S. senator,proposed that the new space agency be called the National Space Exploration Administration.

 

Fifty years after John F. Kennedy's famous speech that set America on its glorious path to the moon, Schmitt, 75, said NASA has lost its focus. The Apollo program helped win the Cold War, strengthened national unity and set up the United States to take control of lunar resources, but NASA has withered under later presidencies, including Barack Obama's, Schmitt said.
