Yeah right. It is pure pork whose only intent is to put off the most devastating economic effects of Obama's destruction of American manned spaceflight until AFTER the November elections. Don't let them fool you. Throw these bastards out on their ear.

Cosmic Log - Senate approves its spaceflight plan: "The Senate version of the authorization bill would let NASA fly an additional shuttle mission beyond the two currently left on the launch schedule, in order to help close the gap between the shuttle fleet's retirement and the deployment of whatever type of spaceship comes afterward. The extra mission, which would have to be cleared by a safety review, would likely send the shuttle Atlantis to the International Space Station in mid-2011."
