+ - White House Panel Considers New Paths To Space->

Submitted by Neil H.
Neil H. (6935) writes "The White House's Human Space Flight Plans blue-ribbon panel has posted the material from their first public meeting on the future of NASA's spaceflight program. NASA officials presented their Ares I rocket plans and their belief that they can work around its design flaws, with projected development costs ballooning to $35 billion. The panel also heard several alternative proposals, such as adapting already-existing EELV and SpaceX rockets to carry crew to orbit; these proposals would have better safety margins than the Ares I, be ready sooner, and cost NASA less than $2 billion to complete, but are politically unattractive."
