Space: Changes in Congress

Editor's note: Ironically, the back side of the quarter honoring Ohio, the state upon which the outcome of this election rested, features both the Wright Flyer and an astronaut on the lunar surface (Neil Armstrong).

So far the space landscape in Congress has only changed a little. Of all the key players, only Rep. Nick Lampson (D-TX) has lost a reelection bid. One change in the House Science Committee should be expected: chairmanship of the Space and Aeronautics Subcommittee. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) got the nod to continue as chair in the current Congress even though term limits would have otherwise moved him out. Rep Ken Calvert (R-CA) has expressed interest in the position.
