This is a message I recieved form somone at JPL. It shows that the shock and unrest spawned by the Administration’s attempt at killing America’s human space flight program. I have to admit that I am surprised at the reaction at JPL to The news of Constellation’s demise. JPL’s budget will go a bit up in the Obama budget. It really shows that NASA is a team, that people of differing stripes value our human space program.
A surprising number of JPL’ers have been telling me that they have had trouble working this week because they feel so derailed by the jolt to human spaceflight. I’m glad to see that so many people here are inspired to see people and not just robots in space.
