Preach it, sistah

Let’s Fix the Asteroid Redirect Mission. And by “fix”, she means cancel and redirect the money.

Speaking of money, here’s the money quote:

Human exploration of Mars and developing technologies to deflect asteroids are two useful objectives, but they need to be untangled to be accomplished effectively. There is no need for ARM other than to meet a political requirement of an administration that has only two years left in office.

Marcia Smith is now officially one of my favorite space industry writers. Really, you should read the whole article, which isn’t too long, where she completely obliterates the case for ARM.
