Alternatives for the U.S. Manned Space Programby Anna Maria Salazar, West Mesa High Sch, United States,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Engineering, Construction, and Operations in Space II
Abstract: There are a number of directions the U.S. space program could take. Should a space station be built? Should a lunar outpost be constructed? Should the U.S. plan a manned trip to Mars? Each alternative requires a great deal of money, and to fund all three would be prohibitively expensive. The advantages of each alternative will be discussed in this paper to clearly define choices that the U.S. faces with the manned space program.
