Only five space shuttle missions remaining.

Last July, Obama thanked the Apollo astronauts for making science and math cool. During the inauguration, he pledged to restore science to her seat. But now it looks like there will be no follow-on to the Shuttle. Looks like that seat will be launching at the Cosmodrome, unless...:(

It affects a whole lot more people than just those in Florida

Obviously POTUS does not care much about his base of political support

This discussion was taking place elsewhere and was actually discussing policy and technology.
