Editor's note: It seems Senator Bill Nelson tweeted some relevant news a few hours ago: "White House tells me the president will fly all nine remaining shuttle missions - even if it means flying the shuttle an extra year."
Which makes me wonder, will we find about the next NASA Administrator through Twitter first.
Editor's Update: I should also point out that aside from receiving the news from Twitter, the important thing here is that the door is open for the Shuttle to potentially fly another year. This means money has to be provided to support an extension. Tomorrow's budget and other potential announcements might provide some clues.
