If Congress passes President Obama's proposed 2011 budget, then American astronauts will not return to the moon by 2020 as planned. The budget would cancel NASA's Constellation Program which also intended to explore the concept of establishing a moon colony.
Still, the budget reinvests in space science research and even focuses on nations to work together on space exploration. Although it cuts the Constellation program, the proposal would actually increase NASA's overall budget by $6 billion over the next five years.

I am a native son of Union City, California. This means that as a senior at James Logan High School I am nearing the completion of my thirteenth school year in the New Haven Unified School District system. The time I have spent undergoing my primary public education has been undeniably formative, but it has also been filled with chaos and vast shortcomings. New Haven Unified has done its job as a center of public education, giving me a satisfactory education using taxpayer dollars. However, when I begin to question the vast potential of the educational opportunities the district has squandered, both for myself and my fellow classmates, I am awestruck; the whims of a handful of irresponsible board members and superintendents have negatively affected and damaged the educations of thousands of Union City students for more than a decade.
