I got this in an email:

"Reports from Washington indicate that NASA Administrator Dr. Mike
Griffin has been holding discussions with the White House to seek
approval for a policy that would truncate the Shuttle program and
rapidly shift its funds towards implementation of human Moon-Mars
exploration."

Anyone know more about this or have sources?

Not sure about the moving funds to the VSE bit. I think it's the general thought that any money saved goes back to Washington, not NASA.

I'll lock this thread so as not to have it discussed in more than one place.
