CEV Misconceptions in Florida

AP Photo Caption: "Lt. Gov. Toni Jennings, top center, announces the findings and recommendations of the Governor's Commission on the future of space and aeronautics at a news conference in Tallahassee, Fla., Wednesday, Jan. 18, 2006.

Editor's note: Gee, even if the AP caption of this X-33 model is in error, it would seem that the folks in Florida state government aren't really up to speed on NASA's CEV activities either (see below)

Florida's Aerospace Mission: Protect, Expand Market Share, LA Times

"The next generation of NASA's manned craft are virtually certain to be launched from the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, but Florida wants to be more than a launch site. The state wants to snare as great a share as possible of the assembly, testing and servicing of the vehicles, Jennings said."

Editor's note: Mike Griffin does not plan to assemble the CEV in Florida. He only plans to launch it from there.
