Shrunk Budget for NASA Causes Delays in Manned Moon-Flight

Abstract:
The $545 million reduction from NASA's budget for 2006 could delay the agency's plans to send a man back to the moon in 2014, NASA's boss Michael Griffin told the Congress on Thursday.

The president's space and technology budget also contains $6.4 billion for the National Science Foundation to support physical sciences, nanotechnology and other areas, $4.4 billion for the Department of Energy, $800 million to improve weather forecasting capabilities, $594 million for the Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology and $436 million over three years in award money for developers who build privately operated space vehicles that would re-supply the International Space Station.
