This plan is already having far greater political problems just one month after announcement, than the Steidle/O'Keefe Spirals plan ever experienced. And Congress overturned that plan 100%.
Is there anyone out there at this moment that thinks this budget for NASA is going to stand as-is?
Interesting the talk of stimulis in small portions beging able to bring Constellation funding up to the levels Augustine stated were needed.
Is there an archive of the session today somewhere? I missed most of it.

Right now Bolden is basically rehashing what he said yesterday about fuel depots, flagship projects, robotic precursors etc.Question time Gordon: Will there be other markets for commercial crew aside from NASA?Bolden: We believe so because the private companies have done research in this are and claim there is.Gordon says the answer is unsatisfactory.
Catching up, great work guys. I'm "happy" Bolden is citing cost and not "safety" as the issue for shuttle extension. That seperates him from Griffin.
Bart Gordon understands the definition of monopsony, it would seem.
