Our government dollars at work. Now it is up to Elon Muskratt and the private sector to put us back on track.

Well at least they were practical about it instead of shouting "MarsCare for everyone!"

Welp it's gonna be up to space x now.

I guess we need to fund a wall instead of go to mars...

Space race is only a thing when you do it on your own. The whole concept of a multinational space race makes people feel less rewarded for their contributions. They will be very lazy about getting this done in the coming years. I wouldn't be surprised at all if a private SpaceX type company gets it done first as a publicity stunt before any nation.All hail capitalism!

I don't really want NASA to send humans to Mars. If it's just for research/science, sending robots is much more sensible. As for Elon Musk and a Mars colony... I think it's cool and I admire the vision. Seems pretty incredible right now though.

cut defense spending by 25% for one year and you can fully fund NASA for 20 years
