P.S I would like to give credit to a bts user for posting the site. It has come to my attention to be very useful.

now back to the topic at hand. On to loam's question..



The report was also urged NASA not to forgo the option of a shuttle servicing mission to the Hubble Space Telescope. O'Keefe has all but ruled out a shuttle mission to Hubble and is focusing instead on servicing of the telescope with a robotic spacecraft.


I've always wanted Nasa to service the HST. It's a way for NASA to not sidetrack from it's capabilities. Since the Colombia disaster NASA has been showing little progress and is paying more attention to safety issues.

As for the cutbacks::::


A key congressional subcommittee slashed President Bush's NASA budget request by more than $1 billion yesterday, dealing a sharp early blow to the administration's efforts to set in motion an ambitious plan to send humans to the moon and Mars.

This would keep NASA in budget, but at the same time it would slow down progress.

IMO the major issue is that the committee does not think Bush is capable of handling new technologies, should they become available to him. Bush previous actions could possibly play a part in the committee's decision. As it was him who made the mistake of publicly passing an ammendment on gay marriages, and it was him who is completely at fault for sending American Soldiers to Iraq.
