NASA Appoints Constellation Program Managers

NASA LogoThis is so sad. What was once probably one of the coolest jobs on Earth – “Constellation Program Manager” – now turns out to be something deliberately pepped up. NASA News writes:

Lawrence D. Thomas has been appointed manager of NASA’s Constellation Program, which manages the effort to take humans beyond low-Earth orbit and develop the next generation launch vehicle and spacecraft.

Watch the emphasis (mine). We wanted to go to the Moon, Mars and also get back. Orion? Merely an escape-vehicle for the ISS, if at all. Ares? Canceled. Altair? Who knows.

Anyway: Congratulations to Lawrence Thomas!
