Space Foundation Report Takes On NASA

Space Foundation Report Takes On NASA

A recent report has raised questions on NASA, thereby urging them to focus on exploring space. Named `Pioneering: Sustaining U. S. Leadership in Space', the Space Foundation report made it clear that NASA is struggling a lot as there are a hell lot of expectations from them without the deserved level of support from the government.

Questioning why astronauts cannot visit the Moon, Space Foundation CEO Elliot Pulham said: "Of course, the answer is we can, but it requires focus and it requires organization. What you have (at NASA) is too many rudders. If . . . everybody's trying to steer, you're not going to get anywhere very clearly and crisply and cleanly".

The report while calling that NASA needs to set priorities properly said that there is dire need to change the leadership so that some sort of progress can be made.

Nonetheless, the report has been backed by many including nation's largest aerospace companies as well as Space Florida and the Economic Development Commission of Florida's Space Coast.

In response to the same, NASA spokesman David Weaver asserted that they are making steady progress considering goals mentioned in the NASA Authorization Act of 2010, which briefs about the space program's trajectory for the next 20 years.
