Spending Bill Puts NASA Back on Track of Space Exploration

President Barack Obama signed the President Barack Obama on Friday to support NASA's major space and science initiatives. It also includes a crewed mission to Mars by 2030s. The Space Launch System would be used to carry out the mission.

"The bill keeps NASA's deep-space exploration program on track and will continue to spur American innovation and keep the U.S. the world leader in space exploration", said David Weaver, NASA's associate administrator for communications.

According to NASA, the Space Launch System will be the most powerful rocket in the world. It will make possible to carry out many kinds of complicated and deep space missions. The best part is that it has the capability of preventing our planet from asteroids. It can redirect asteroids or anything else approaching earth.

This September at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, will see the beginning of implementations of plans for deep-space exploration. The first unmanned Orion will get the boost from a United Launch Alliance Delta 4 rocket. This will take the Orion to the height of 3,600 miles and then the test spacecraft will head back at 20,000mph. It has heat shield to stay protected from re-entry temperatures that can reach 4,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
