Teal Analyst Urges President’s Moon-Mars Commission to De-Link Missions PR Newswire

Testifying before the President’s Commission on Moon, Mars and Beyond at the Georgia Centers for Advanced Telecommunications Technology in Atlanta, GA, Teal Group senior space analyst Marco Caceres yesterday recommended that one way to improve the long-term sustainability of President Bush’s new Space Exploration Initiative (SEI) is to “de-link” the Moon-Mars missions and aim to accomplish each of them in timeframes of within 10 years. Caceres cautioned the Commission, “De-link the two missions, otherwise there is a better than even chance that you end up dooming both.”
