What's Next

Click the arrow to watch the video.

Brevard Community College held a forum last night titled, "What's Next?  A Turning Point in the United States Space Program."  The panelists were:
  • Frank Di Bello, President, Space Florida
  • Janet Petro, Deputy Director, NASA KSC
  • Mike Leinbach, Director of Human Spaceflight, United Launch Alliance
  • John Kelly, Florida Today, moderator
It's well worth the 83 minutes to watch, because it provides a lot of detail about all that's happening at Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

After watching the event, I'm more optimistic than ever about KSC's future.

UPDATE April 14, 2012 7:15 PM EDTSpace columnist John Kelly of Florida Today writes about Friday night's forum.

We learned that the one thing space industry leaders believe what we, as taxpayers, can do to help the situation is to contact our representatives in Congress to tell them how strongly we feel about the importance of a stable, long-term space policy that results in the United States rebuilding its now lost ability to launch humans in space.
