Definitely a step in the right direction.  Providing this goes through, I think the results will be very positive.  This is probably better than having the Constellation program.

Quote Washington, D.C. – The Commercial Spaceflight Federation is issuing the following statement applauding NASA’s anticipated announcement of a $6 billion competitive, commercial crew program and welcoming the President’s show of support for NASA with his significant planned increase for NASA’s overall budget.

Space travel went out of style 40 years ago.

If you guys are going to spend 6 billion on science and education, and feel like ignoring the school system and medical system, why not spend it on something that people will care about?

Like the search for the lost city of Atlantis.
