We shall go to an asteroid...

President Obama has set a new goal for NASA:  Pick an asteroid and send a manned mission to it by 2025, with the purpose of deflecting it to make sure it doesn't hit Earth.  It doesn't have to really be on a course to hit Earth, just practice for when a real threat is posed by one.  A secondary purpose is to be a preparatory step toward a manned mission to Mars by 2030.

How does he expect them to do that, since he's taking away their budget and giving it to the private sector?
