Griffin's Plans Conflict With Hutchison's Bill
“The legislation authorizes NASA for Fiscal Years 2006 through 2010, establishes a policy objective of uninterrupted U.S. spaceflight capability and requires completion of the International Space Station (ISS).”
Editor’s note: This may be a little hard for Mike Griffin to comply with – he is proposing a 2 year gap between Shuttle shutdown (2010) and CEV operations (2012) – a gap which many expect to widen over time. Moreover, with his plan to limit shuttle ISS missions to between 16 – 18, he will need to gut the baseline (Rev. G) definition (28 flights) of what a “complete” ISS looks like.
