Op/Ed: Moon-Mars money Florida Today

The moon-Mars mission proposed by President Bush in January — one we have strongly supported as the key to unimaginable technological progress — is in danger of starvation in Congress. That should be ringing alarm bells for the entire Florida delegation, including Democratic Sens. Bill Nelson and Bob Graham, and local GOP Representatives Dave Weldon and Tom Feeney. With the short lame-duck session under way this week, they and their state colleagues must get to work to make sure NASA is assured all the money needed to get the potentially historic venture under way.
