NASA Stimulus Fund Update

NASA Development money could go toward Ares rocket, Hunstville Times

"From what I understand with past budgets, NASA's exploration budget generally goes to development and since Ares is part of the new program development and it is one that is behind and in need, then the money would probably go to it" and the Orion crew capsule and a lunar lander, said Keith Cowing, who runs the space agency watchdog Web site NASAWatch.com. Cowing said the language did not exclude using the money for shuttle missions, either. "That's probably not likely, but it is not forbidden," he said."
