1732907 story Obama's Impending NASA Decisions 405 Posted by kdawson on Friday November 14, 2008 @11:08AM from the in-space-no-one-can-hear-you-run-out-of-money dept. eldavojohn writes "From delaying Project Constellation to an additional $2 billion in funding, Space.com looks at some immediate decisions the President Elect will have to make once he takes office in January. The biggest one will be the shuttle plan: do we retire the shuttle fleet or keep it on for more missions? If it is retired, we would have to rely on another country to bring our astronauts into space between 2010 and 2015 as a new fleet is built. Will Obama hold true on his $2 billion pledge to NASA?"
