Walking on the moon

President Obama's call for a halt to Constellation, the project that aims to send astronauts back to the moon by 2020 has generated plenty of coverage. Samples of the news and comment can be seen here, here, and here. For a good summing up of the issues take a look at Michael Robinson's The Death of the Constellation Program.


  1. Richard, thanks for the link! I love your blog and look forward to reading Those Who Dared. I've put up a link on Time to Eat the Dogs and will also announce your site via Twitter. The exploration/journalism link is so rich. Do you know Beau Riffenberg by any chance? He's also a traveler in the world of journalism and adventure. Best, Michael

  2. Michael, I only know Beau Riffenberg through his books, most notably The Myth of the Explorer (http://www.amazon.com/Myth-Explorer-Scott-Polar-Research/dp/047194758X)

    I'm impressed with Time to eat the dogs, especially the great range of sources/links - and thanks for adding THD to the blogroll.
    Cheers, Richard
