Aero-News Quote of the Day
"[Y]oung Americans as a group are generally disengaged
from, and cynical about ... the US space program."
Source: From a study reported on last week at
the American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics Space 2006
meeting. The study, conducted by Dittmar Associates, was
commissioned to gauge public reaction for "The Vision for Space
Exploration" program announced by President Bush in January of
2004. Overall endorsement of the space program in general was very
strong, with 69% of all Americans voicing their support... but that
figure drops sharply among young adults 18 to 25, ranking it almost
last in priority among concerns of jobs, the war, and
relationships. Less than one quarter surveyed had any interest in
seeing humans return to the moon.
