NASA's Europa mission depends on who the next president is | Europa News | Scoop.it

Everything depends, therefore, on who the next president is. If the president regards space exploration as even slightly important, the Europa mission may well come to fruition. It will take presidential leadership to enact the kinds of budget increases, in an era of persistent high deficits, that will be necessary to make such a mission happen.

Lauren Lyons's insight:

Insightful commentary.
