Well this stinks on ice!
The White House Pres/Sec is denying a space speech will take place.
I'm still hopeful, the study isn't complete yet and the traditional venue for such announcements is a State of the Union Address.
Remember, Bush the First proposed a big ambitious space plan, the Space Exploration Initiative also mentioned here , so there is a history there. That got nixed by a combination of NASA bureaucrats and a Democrat Congress.
My fingers are still crossed....
Oh! BTW, go here and start linkin' n' scrollin'. The Mad Finnish spaceblogger has updated his site! :)
Update:Third times a charm... this is about half of what I tried to post earlier, does anyone know if there is a link limit on a blogger post?
