- Donald Barker argues that the Vision for Space Exploration should be focused on Mars, not the Moon, for several reasons.
- Taylor Dinerman wonders if Sen. Daniel Inouye, who will be the ranking Democrat on the Senate Commerce Committee next year, will follow in the footsteps of a late colleague also from Hawaii.
- Sam Dinkin celebrates the passage of HR 5382.
- Dwayne Day reexamines some of the myths associated with the Vision for Space Exploration (like the trillion-dollar price tag) and finds that some are more persistent than others.
