Nasa to go nuclear
"President Bush is set to endorse using nuclear power to explore Mars and open up the outer Solar System."Finally something Bush is pushing for that I can get behind. Thank you, Mr. President.
Even if the Nuclear-powered Prometheus doesn't get very far, at least it opens up the mindset for manned extra-orbital space exploration once more, after 20+ years.
Memo to the BBC, though. "NASA" is an acronym. It's not a word spelled "Nasa"... Oh, and I wonder if, when Bush announces this formally at the State of the Union address (as expected), he'll pronounce it "nucular"? Take a shot if he does - it's fun!
