Why not?

While agree with the Obama Administration's cancellation of the troubled Constellation program I have already blogged about my serious issues with not having a viable manned space system. It could easily be ten years until this country could field another manned flight system once the Shuttle Program ends. Couple that with estimates that the loss of Constellation and the cancellation of the Shuttle may cost as many as 27,000 jobs and it seems like a really bitter pill to swallow.

Personally I think extending the Shuttle program is the best, lowest cost option at this point. Too bad that's not likely to happen.
