Preview of NASA's Job Forecast Spin

NASA expected to release rosier job forecast for post-shuttle era (with link to NASA Workforce Transition Strategy Summary Points), Orlando Sentinel

"NASA plans to tell Congress Wednesday that the retirement of the space shuttle in 2010 won't result in as many job losses as initially anticipated, according to congressional sources and documents obtained by the Orlando Sentinel. A rosier forecast would be a boon for Kennedy Space Center, which has been told to expect a worst-case estimate of 6,400 job losses. Some officials say that NASA is forecasting at least 1,000 fewer job losses, and that the worst case number of job losses now is likely to be less than 5,000."
