Senator Richard Shelby, America can't afford space shuttle, station and Ares rockets, The Huntsville Times
"The Tuscaloosa Republican told members of The Huntsville Times editorial board this morning that America probably could not afford to continue flying the space shuttle past its set September 2010 retirement date, continue supporting the $100 billion space station past 2015 and build the shuttle's intended successor - the Ares I."
