Correct, if it's not fully funded to me it's just a blue sky statement at this stage.
It'll happen. These are the things that we get done. The only issue might be if the Libs get elected, which they won't. Even if by some chance they do though, we may be able to lean on the Sally Zou connection.

JFK 1961 - we are going to the moon before this decade is over. We dont know how the fu** we are going to do it, we haven't recruited the astronauts, engineers, rocket builders yet, we haven't set the budget and funding process yet, but we are going to have a crack.

That's how I see this announcement. One to focus the mind and set a target date to achieve it. Stop talking about it, start finding the people and resources to do it.
