Today, President Bush will unveil his bold new vision for America's space program. The plan is to include the scrapping of the troubled Space Shuttle by the end of the decade, leaving the International Space station by 2010, the establishment of a permanent base on the moon, and a manned mission to Mars by 2030.

Its about time that somebody creates a vision for NASA's manned spaceflight program that has seemingly floundered since the end of Apollo.

Once again, the President leads with vision and boldness rather than with polls and focus groups.
