Buzz Aldrin, On Keeping The Space Shuttles In Use

Posted by BC on March 19th, 2010

Buzz Aldrin has not held back his comments about dry docking the Space Shuttles. In his blog, Aldrin wrote about preparing the shuttles for the next step in the space program: going onward and outward to Mars. Aldrin advocates keeping the shuttle program going to save jobs, to save time, and to save our momentum for future space exploration. Read all of his comments in his blog entry. He makes many good points.

Good point(s) Buzz! Unless the President has something ‘up his sleeve’ that he’s not disclosed to the public(?) I must agree that a shuttle derived heavy lift launcher would be key!
