Any thoughts from this group on the decommissioning of Spacebook?

Here is the followup article.  Looks like we are heading cautiously in this direction.

In the words of Wayne Hale, SAS’s director for human spaceflight programs and a former Space Shuttle program manager, “I think there was broad agreement in the value propositions...There are a number of different schools of thought about those value propositions, tailored to different audiences...The overarching value proposition that we totally came to a consensus on was that exploration was part of what has made America what it is, and that it is a transformational event for the country to be engaged in exploration” with societal benefits.

I was reading this recent article on mashable about the potential of putting a physical (or orbiting) space station on the moon. Would love to hear some NASA folks' take on it. Is there any truth to the rumor? What would the benefits be of a station on the moon? Does the fact that the Russians are leading the charge add any extra incentive for us to get involved?

NASA Hacker Enters Plea:


A Texas man pleaded guilty to hacking into computer networks to steal money. And he admitted breaking into NASA systems that house satellite data. Jeremey Parker of Houston, Texas pleaded guilty to wire fraud. He hacked systems of a Minnesota software company and stole more than a quarter million dollars. Parker also caused damage to servers at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. NASA had to spend $43,000 dollars to repair them. Thousands of users were denied access to servers while they were repaired.




Also; Khwaja Shamas from NASA and Dr. David Metcalf, Researcher, Mixed Emerging Technology Integration Lab, University of Central Florida’s Institute for Simulation & Training to speak at - Dr. Metcalf brings nearly two decades experience developing learning and simulation tools that promote innovation for organizations like NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, Johnson & Johnson, the Marine Corps, and Defense Acquisition University.

President George W. Bush told NASA to return to the moon and prepare for manned exploration of Mars. The man he put in charge, Michael Griffin, was a certified rocket scientist with a passion for manned space exploration. In the four years he served as NASA Administrator, Griffin was continually forced to make controversial financial tradeoffs that brought him into conflict with constituencies who disagreed with him. He did, however, make significant progress in redirecting NASA toward the new Moon-Mars program.

This report provides insights into the challenge of managing large, controversial programs in government. It also offers lessons for both the next NASA Administrator as well as other public executives who are expected to lead in challenging political and fiscal environments.
