In 2010, President Obama told NASA chief Charles Bolden that his foremost job was to: “ . . . find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math and engineering.” But last month, NASA Chief Scientist Ellen Stofan said the agency’s primary focus is humans on Mars by 2035.
Is this another one of President Obama’s famous pivots? Are we pivoting to Mars, now?
We’re lucky he hasn’t pushed an expedition to land on the Sun.
