Obama and Glenn Meet To Talk Space

Obama to meet with John Glenn today, Orlando Sentinel

"President Barack Obama plans to meet with former astronaut and senator John Glenn this afternoon to discuss the administration's new plan for NASA. White House officials did not reveal specifics of the meeting, although Glenn recently wrote a letter that supported more space shuttle flights and the development of a new heavy-lift rocket that could blast future astronauts beyond low-Earth orbit."

Statement of Senator John Glenn (ret.) Regarding NASA Manned Space Flight, earlier post

"These are critical days for the future of Manned Space Flight. Conflicting views and advice come to the President and Congress from every quarter in the aerospace and science communities. There is good reason for the concern. The U.S. for the first time since the beginning of the Space Age will have no way to launch anyone into space - starting next January."
