The annual Presidential State of the Union address is tonight (9:00 PM EST), and George W. Bush must be nervous. Tonight he must convince an apathetic nation that war with Iraq is not only necessary, but unavoidable. Not since Vietnam has there been such protest against war. But according to a Los Angeles Times article, Bush will also be outlining his plans for an increase in NASA's budget. Project Prometheus, a new program specializing in nuclear-propulsion research, may be formally announced. Is it an ulterior motive for military power in space? Probably, but hey, a nuclear-propulsion engine could get humans to Mars in 2 months.
