Hubble mission now last flight for Atlantis, Huntsville Times

"Cowing said the date also should be a reasonable indicator of when shuttle workers might "start being either shifted to other work, retired or possibly laid off. "One would suspect that the last mission for Atlantis would be a red light for layoffs."

Editor's note: NASA Headquarters has a new political appointee in its employ: Patrick Rhode. He'll be working on the 9th floor.

For those of you who followed the post-Katrina management fiasco at FEMA you may recall hearing his name. Rhode served as FEMA Director Michael Brown's Chief of Staff and later, as Acting Deputy Director of FEMA. I am sure the folks at Stennis and Michoud will be thrilled to learn this.

Editor's update: Patrick Rhode is now listed in NASA's online phonebook as a "senior advisor" to "Organization: A" (Office of the Administrator)

What follows are a few media excerpts from that time:
