In January, President Obama announced he was cancelling the NASA Constellation program and dramatically cutting back the space agency's budget.

Now, part of the Constellation program is intact and U.S. sights are set on an asteroid landing and a Mars expedition. Tuesday morning at 9, join host Dan Moulthrop for a conversation about the implications for Ohio in the President's new goals for space exploration.
