Yes, another day, another critic of the Obama Space plan. But this time, it’s not just any critic. No, today’s critic is Air Force General (ret.) Lester Lyles, who also happens to be a former member of the Augustine Committee.
In a letter to Representative Frank Wolf, Ranking Member of the House Appropriations Science Subcommittee, General Lyles criticizes the Obama Administration’s plans to de-emphasize the human space flight program in favor of one led by robotics. It’s a good read and we have a copy of the letter to Rep. Wolf, as signed by General Lyles, Raymond Calladay and Len Fisk.
