Before taking office, Barack Obama said in a speech that we were only weeks away from “fundamentally transforming” the United States of America. Obama has said that America should make the goal of traveling to Mars a reality!
It’s something of a JFK moment, when the former president called on Americans to make going to the moon more than just an idea.
We’ve seen race relations hit their lowest point since the L.A. riots, food stamp usage hit record highs, median household income fall, falling home-ownership rates, and historic rises in poverty. Or as Barack Obama calls it, an economic recovery. With only months left in his presidency, think he has any plans up his sleeve to make America great again? He has one – and it’s ironic coming from the man who gutted our nation’s space program.
President Obama is vowing America will put a man on Mars, announcing Tuesday that the U.S. government will partner with private companies to send humans there by the 2030s.
“We have set a clear goal vital to the next chapter of America’s story in space: sending humans to Mars by the 2030s and returning them safely to Earth,” Obama wrote in a CNN op-ed.
The president said the mission’s ultimate goal is make it possible for humans to stay on Mars “for an extended time.”
The first step is for the NASA to collaborate with private companies to send astronauts to the International Space Station for the first time. That will occur “within the next two years,” Obama wrote.
Obama said that more than 1,000 companies across the country are working on private space initiatives.
“We are working with our commercial partners to build new habitats that can sustain and transport astronauts on long-duration missions in deep space,” he wrote. “These missions will teach us how humans can live far from Earth — something we’ll need for the long journey to Mars.”
If anything is for certain, it’s that despite all the praise Obama has ushered on him, Clock Boy will be absent for the entirety of this project.
