UND's 10-day simulation of moon mission is over; 30-day mission is next
The three UND students took a gulp of fresh air Wednesday as they left the long, windowless tube that has served as home for the past 10 days. Like astronauts returning to Earth, they savored things like blue sky and the ability to walk around unencumbered by a 25-pound canvas suit. The...

OUR OPINION: National debt keeps NASA earthbound
A week ago, did President Barack Obama pass the baton of leadership and usher in the Chinese Century? It's possible that he did. So momentous is Obama's decision to cancel NASA's manned lunar-landing program and cede the next moon landing to China that even Clay Jenkinson, Bismarck...

Jay Brausch, Glen Ullin, N.D., letter: Steer NASA toward exploring planets
GLEN ULLIN, N.D. --I was disappointed earlier this year when I heard that the Obama administration was scrapping NASA's project to return to the moon. Having all the land area of Africa and a variety of features unaltered since early in the solar system's history, the moon truly...

Richard Hanson, Grafton, N.D., letter: Moon may be cause of global warming

Moon crash: Public yawns, scientists celebrate

OUR OPINION: Content with the moon, aloof about Mars
Forty years ago, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon. Ten other U.S. astronauts followed over the next three years. And then -- nothing. No more manned space travel beyond Earth's orbit between 1972 and today. Why? Maybe because 41 years ago, one of the 20th century's...
