“As a long time space advocate, I have found recent events to be extremely disheartening. Before my eyes, I am seeing the battle between the old exploration plan (Constellation), and the new plan put forth recently by NASA and the White House. This is battle is compounded by the fact that it is forcing a Congress unwilling to take on more fights before the election to allow NASA to operate for months under a continuing resolution (CR) for its next budget year.
The effect of this CR will be that NASA will have two zombie programs. By “zombie” I mean programs that were supposed to go away in FY 2011 but will be in a limbo state under a threatened Continuing Resolution – funded with their end dates no longer certain, but unable to truly move forward as they await their fate.”
