Nasa faces journey into the unknown

Former astronauts criticise move to reorganise US space exploration programme.

    Barack Obama, the US president, is to outline his vision for the future of the nation's space programme on Thursday, including ending a programme to send US astronauts back to the moon in a decade.

    But the move, due to a budget cut, has drawn criticism from Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon, and two fellow astronauts, saying it will destroy, with a stroke of a pen, what has taken decades to build up.

    Al Jazeera's Cath Turner reports.
