But not too much. From an AP article about a Florida appearance by the Arizona senator and likely 2008 presidential candidate:
He also said he strongly supports missions to Mars and that Florida should continue to play a major role in space exploration.
“There’s too much invested there. There’s infrastructure that’s very expensive and very extensive there,” he said.
That’s it. He supports “missions to Mars” (robotic? human? and what about the Moon?) and wants Florida to “continue to play a major role” in space (although there are no credible plans to abandon the “expensive” and “extensive” infrastructure there as part of the Vision for Space Exploration.) Not exactly the most insightful look at a McCain space policy, but given the relative standing of space versus other policy issues, it’s perhaps the best you can expect for the foreseeable future.
