Jeff Foust reports on some Florida editorials regarding candidate endorsements and their space policy positions: [Endorsements for Kosmas and Posey, but not for Grayson – Space Politics] === I agree with Buzz that lunar bases must come before Mars missions but I sympathize with people such as the President who may get a bit confused by Buzz’s statements regarding the Moon: [Why Mars? Buzz Aldrin Wants a Lunar Base First – FoxNews.com].
Eg. the Moon was missing from Buzz’s to-do list back in the spring: [Mr. President, here’s my NASA to-do list – USATODAY.com – April.14.10]. And Moon bases were not mentioned in his essays [here] and [here].
**Update**: Rand Simberg defends Buzz: [Back To The Moon – Transterrestrial Musings].
