Obama calls for NASA to focus on trips to Mars and beyond

President Barack Obama said yesterday that if Congress agrees to fund his plans for NASA, the space agency would forgo a manned return to the moon to instead focus on sending astronauts to Mars and further into the solar system.

Obama spoke to a crowd of about 200 people at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida yesterday in an effort to counter criticism that his 2011 federal budget plan would cut NASA’s Constellation program that would return humans to the moon.
