Shuttle and Budget Woes Worsen

NASA Media Teleconference with Bill Parsons and Bill Gerstenmaier (Transcript)

Katrina batters shuttle program, Orlando Sentinel

"NASA is unable to find about 1,000 workers from the Michoud Assembly Facility east of New Orleans where the space shuttles' external fuel tanks are built. The damage to Michoud and another Gulf Coast NASA center will cost the agency about $1.1 billion as it tries to repair buildings and find homes for those who lost everything when Hurricane Katrina hit Aug. 29, Bill Gerstenmaier, a NASA associate administrator, said Thursday."
