Preliminary Reaction To NASA's 2007 Budget

This Spacedaily.com story (here) breaks down the 2007 proposed NASA budget. No doubt there will be much criticism of all the money going to try to get the shuttle flying again. The shuttle is long overdue for retirement. And robotic science missions are taking a cut. But this budget should surprise nobody. It increases funding for human space exploration by a considerable amount and it funds the shuttle and the International Space Station. These priorities are in keeping with the President's Vision for Space Exploration. It's not a perfect budget but its priority to human space flight is a good thing.
