simonbp writes “The Senate Commerce Committee this morning marked up a compromise NASA Authorization Act that rolls back some of Obama’s plans for NASA, while keeping others. The bill adds at least one more shuttle flight, keeps Obama’s technology demonstrators and commercial access to ISS (albeit at reduced funding), restores the Orion crew capsule, and replaces the Ares rockets with a Shuttle-Derived ‘Space Launch System’ for going to the ISS and Beyond, which could be ready as soon as 2015.”
