Aldrin’s goal? To inspire the next president to commit to a manned mission to Mars by the 50th anniversary of the 1969 moon landing. Is Mars a bit too much to ask? Friday, David Masten, rocket designer and founder of Masten Space Systems, unveiled another T-shirt which he says “says it all.”

Is this some sort of space grudge match we don’t know about, or just an opportunity to expand our geeky T-shirt collection? And what’s the chance of the next president committing to any sort of manned space program?
