[quote name="Media Address"] Good evening ladies and gentlemen of the United States. I am pleased to announce today that the United States is once again returning to the Space Race. We have passed budgeting refunding NASA and are going to start up an old program for a reusable SSTO space vehicle know as the [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VentureStar"]X-33 Venturestar[/url]. Current plans call for a working and functional model in 3 years time and it has become a primary focus of my administration.. to be completed on my last year in office as your interim President. The reason for our particular desire to use this kind of a vehicle is its potential ease of access to orbital bodies, including the Lunar surface if we include additional fuel in the lift cargo or do a booster assisted launch to ensure the craft retains as much as a fuel load as possible. We hope to eventually use this platform to extend into lunar exploration, perhaps even setting up a colony or mining operations on the moon itself. Anyone interested in contributing to the program in terms of expertise or funding is welcome to do so. Contact my Technology Cabinet Minister, Ross Simons. At this time, I'm willing to answer questions from the Media. [/quote] Edited June 3, 2010 by Maelstrom Vortex Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
