President Obama has renewed the country's committment to manned space program in a speech on Thursday.
"The bottom line is, nobody is more committed to manned spaceflight, to human exploration of space than I am," he told attendees at the White House. "We've got to do it in a smart way and we can't just keep on doing the same old things we've been doing and thinking that's going to get us where we want to go."
Pointing to Mars and asteroids as destinations, President Obama on Thursday forcefully countered criticisms that he was trying to end the nation’s human spaceflight program.
