More enroll for Mars trip than for health exchange The Washington Times

The hits just keep on coming with Obamacare enrollee tales of disaster, with the latest joke that more people have actually completed an online application to journey to Mars than successfully signed into the White House’s websites for health reform exchanges.
The Daily Mail reported that Twitter exploded on Thursday after it was revealed that 202,586 individuals had successfully signed up for the Mars One colony project to populate the red planet as soon as the technology becomes available. By comparison, the analytics firm found that only 36,000 have registered for Obamacare via the official government site,

Robot teams may be best for space missions The Washington Times

A British engineer said Tuesday that future space missions might be best undertaken by teams of cooperating robots. James Law, a doctoral candidate at England’s Open University, noted despite the successes of probes such as Europe’s Mars Express orbiter and NASA’s twin rovers, Spirit and Opportunity, only five of the past 17 spacecraft sent to Mars have survived to perform their missions.

Op/Ed: The choice for Kitty Hawk The Washington Times

Tomorrow will be the 100th anniversary of the Wright brothers historic first flight at Kitty Hawk and falls within the 200th anniversary of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Such a portentous occasion cannot go by unmarked, and the word is out that President Bush will travel to the scene of the aviation pioneers’ triumph to make a statement reaffirming America’s commitment to exploring new frontiers, which now lie in space. The question is, what will the vision be? For the past 30 years, since the conclusion of the Apollo Moon landings, humans to Mars has been the challenge staring the space program in the face. Because it once had abundant flowing liquid water, Mars could have been, and may yet be, a home for life. The Red Planet thus is the Rosetta stone that holds the key to our enlightenment on the issue of the prevalence and diversity of life in the universe. Uniquely among all the worlds within our reach, it possesses all the other resources needed for not only life, but technological civilization. Mars is also the critical test that will determine whether humankind can transcend its limits and become a multi-planet species.

’10th Democrat’ eyes Mars The Washington Times

With all the speculation that retired Gen. Wesley Clark may soon step in and give shape to the still-shapeless Democratic presidential primary campaign, pundits are wondering: Will he become “the 10th Democrat”?

Op-Ed : Manifest Destiny in outer space The Washington Times

In the wake of the Columbia disaster, it is gratifying to see that the majority of political leaders across the spectrum have met the setback with an attitude of resolution rather than retrenchment. There is no doubt: America will persevere in space. Yet, it is not enough to continue the quest. We must win it. The American space program, begun so brilliantly in the era of Apollo, has spent the past thirty years without remotely comparable levels of achievement. We need a defining goal to drive our space program forward. At this point of history, that focus can only be the human exploration and settlement of Mars.

Op-Ed: The race into space The Washington Times

Are the Chinese serious about human space flight? Most definitely. And they are interested in doing more than simply going to low Earth orbit. They are headed for the moon. For most of last year, the Commission on the Future of the U.S. Aerospace Industry looked at our nation’s position relative to our global competition. Clearly, the Europeans are determined to challenge our preeminence in commercial aviation, and the challenge to our leadership in space is coming from the Pacific Rim.
