(Still) Waiting For Norm [Update]

NASA review panel report likely to be delivered to White House by mid-October, Huntsville Times

"A much anticipated independent report about the future of NASA and human space flight probably will not be sent to President Barack Obama until the middle of October, a spokesman for panel told The Times today. "I don't see a firm date just now," said Augustine Commission spokesman Doc Mirelson. "What we are seeing is probably the second week of October."

Keith's note: As such it is unlikely that the White House will have anything definitive to say until perhaps a few days before Thanksgiving.
