Save Ares Update

Key contractors meet with Sen. Richard Shelby about Marshall Space Flight Center's Ares rocket, Huntsville Times

"Graffeo said it appeared that the aerospace contractors did not have a public support strategy. "It's clear now that they do not. Regardless, Sen. Shelby will continue to work to see that the time and money we have invested to close the gap in manned space flight is not wasted," he said. Many within NASA, along with aerospace leaders and space experts, are divided on Ares. Chief among the concerns are that the rocket will not be ready in time to continue carrying crews to the space station by 2015. To Keith Cowing, who runs the independent Web site, no matter who makes the request meetings the end result is a type of lobbying."
