Debate moderator John King of CNN asked the other six candidates in attendance whether they would continue federal funding for human space flight. Not a single candidate - Texas Rep. Ron Paul, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain — raised their hand.
Gingrich went further saying it is about how to "get into space faster, better, more effectively, more creatively if you decentralize it, get it out of Washington and cut out the bureaucracy." He added "it is about getting to a space program that works." More from SpacePolitics.
