Obama's Budget Would Eliminate NASA's Moon Mission
With President Obama saying no to a $100-billion plan for NASA to return to the moon... many people are speaking out.
First, U.S. Senator Bill Nelson of Florida... then Governor Charlie Crist... and now... North Central Florida residents.
The president says it's too expensive to send humans to the moon... halting the constellation program, which called for a return to the moon by 2020.
The NASA cuts are part of President Obama's proposed $3.8 trillion budget
Officials are calling for a loss of 7,000 jobs in Florida when the space shuttle is retired next year.
