Congress Approves $19 billion for NASA

Late Wednesday, Congress approved that $19 billion would go to NASA so NASA could develop a heavy-lift vehicle. NASA passed by the Senate's agreement. Because of the Senate's approval, NASA could progress on President Barack Obama's plan of strategy, including space commercial development for space transportation. Congress and Obama are supposed to sign the check. The money is expected to be given to NASA after the November election.

NASA is proud to announce that another rocket is expected to be launched from NASA, between February 2011 and June 2011.

Unfortunately, when the program for the shuttle ends, 9,000 people that took a big part in the ship functioning and production, are expected to loose their jobs. Today, 1,200 people were laid off from shuttle working. Many people departing, have worked with the shuttle from the beginning of the production.
