NASA = Ouch

Well, the fan has been blowing for awhile and the proverbial sh*t has hit. President Obama revealed the plan/budget for NASA and it did not include any attempt to go to the moon. More importantly the plan canceled the Constellation Program, the Space Shuttle replacement. Instead NASA will now work with private companies to send astronauts to space. This is a radical shift for NASA and has huge implications for what NASA can do and will do. Overall, I think I'm for it. NASA didn't know what it was doing with the Constellation Program. It had over promised, and when it didn't deliver, it got bit in the butt.
