VIDEO: The 2008 Space Debate w/ Walter Cunningham & Lori Garver

Apollo 7 Astronaut Walter Cunningham representing Senator McCain, and former NASA Associate Administrator Lori Garver, representing Senator Obama squared off in a Presidential Space Policy Debate back in August of 2008 at The University of Colorado.

This debate is worth a re-watch as the entire NASA human space flight program is now under review by the Obama Administration.

Obama’s 2010 budget shows a massive decrease in the  total amount of funding available through 2020 for human space exploration. Funding for exploration (2010-2020) nose dived from $108 billion to only $81.5 billion.
