The Actual Document
I have provided a link to the original PDF document from NASA. From this document, I am unable to distill the motivation for decommissioning the space station. --Scasey1960 (talk) 15:52, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
Previous discussion without headers
We should go out and explore space. . .
. . .but the VSE is beginning to look like nothing more than political grandstanding.
I do not know where to ask this, but what is the origin of the VSE? Whose idea was it? Was it originally written by Griffin? Zubrin? Someone else? I am not suggesting that person be criticized, only that the full progression be explained. This was a huge change in direction. We should know how we started on this course, and it seems unlikely that President Bush developed it personally.
One of the most serious problems with the VSE and its implementation under the Bush Administration was the lack of open discussion of the goals and strategies. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Danwoodard (talk • contribs) 19:58, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
It might be informative to have a listing of the programs that were cancelled or delayed due to the VSE, for example PARCS. 00:29, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
Note on the Criticism Section
I'm removing Buzz Aldrin's name from those responsible for the cited abstract "Sustainable Space Exploration and Space Development - A Unified Strategic Vision". While his work was used as a reference, the only authors listed as responsible for it are Feng Hsu, Ph.D. and Ken Cox, Ph.D.
