Baseline Established After Completion Of Systems Requirement
After having one of its (now former) astronauts charged with
assault... a hailstorm that damaged and delayed the shuttle
Atlantis... and a funding shortage that will keep its next
generation spacecraft on the ground until 2015, NASA could use some
good news right now. Well, it's not a miracle donation of $545
million in cash... but NASA does have some reason to celebrate,
courtesy of its upcoming Orion crew exploration vehicle.
A stellar career spanning a decade has come to an abrupt end.
NASA, by mutual agreement with the US Navy, released a statement
Wednesday announcing astronaut Lisa Nowak's termination from her
duties with the space agency.
