Trump to Sign Directive for Space Travel

When President Trump was elected, I was a bit worried.  I was not worried about the things Democrats and liberals were worried about (Gay rights, abortion rights etc). Instead, I was more worried about Trump's stance on global warming and science. He presented himself as being anti-science and even placed people with poor academic credentials to lead agencies dealing with science.

Moreover, he has cut funding to many organizations that deal with climate change and science in general. This prompted the marches for sciences last spring. However, he seems to be having a change of heart in regards to science. Today, Trump gave acting NASA administrator Robert M. Lightfoot JR a mandate to send astronauts back to the Moon and eventually to Mars. The previous president Obama made cuts to NASA and stifled its work. The directive is good news. Studying the universe is important. It will help reveal more about our own planet and how life formed.
