PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — President Bush (search) will announce plans next week to send Americans to Mars and establish a permanent human presence on the moon (search), senior administration officials said Thursday night.

Bush won't propose sending Americans to Mars (search) anytime soon; rather, he envisions preparing for the mission more than a decade from now, one official said.

In addition to proposing the first trip to the moon since December 1972, the president wants to build a permanent space station there.

Three senior officials said Bush wants to aggressively reinvigorate the space program, which has been demoralized by a series of setbacks, including the space shuttle disaster last February that killed seven astronauts.

The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Bush's announcement would come in the middle of next week.

Talk is cheap, especially in an election year. I'll believe it when Congress funds it.

Not necessarily, think of all the experiments that could be done in low G environments that can't be done here. I think that it is about time we go back to the moon. As for mars it'd be a great idea, but with the "demoralizing setbacks" occurred there I think it'd be best till we can land probes on the red planet 95% of the time. I know manned ships would be easier to control, and would resolve atleast one of the problems occurred with a probe going to mars.

I highly doubt ten years. But I expect to see it within my lifetime. I expect to partake in it aswell.

As am I. We have discussed this in Physics and I don't see ten years as being nearly enough to prefect any kind of mass training mass transit to anywhere in outerspace.

Thats not what I would call a permanent community, especially since when they die, their new son would be left alone and have no one to play with. Community status wouldn't be reached on another planet for many many more years then ten.

Because Bush is a good actor, he has decieved conservatives who are unable to think for themselves. The only reason why he went to Iraq was because his approval ratings were down and Karl Rove told him to come over.
