Obama to face NASA workers April 15

On April 15, President Barack Obama will face NASA contractors and workers directly to explain his decision to make drastic changes to manned space program.

If Obama's decisions stand as presented, it will mean the end of the shuttle and the end of the yet-to-be-launched Constellation program which had been meant to replace it.

No one at NASA, and just about every space-supporter alive says Obama's plan will set the U.S. space program back decades. Others, a minority to say the least, claim his funding for advanced propulsion efforts will mean jump-starting the future. Still others are still walking the line.

On April 15 Obama will have an opportunity to sway even more folks to his way of thinking...or alienate even more.
