Watch It Live: Augustine, Griffin To Testify Today

The chairman of President Barack Obama's space panel, Norm Augustine, will present his group's findings lawmakers today.

Augustine will answer questions this afternoon before members of the House Science and Technology Committee.

His testimony is expected to clash with another witness scheduled to appear.

Former NASA Administrator Michael Griffin, who oversaw the development of the Constellation program and whose cost and timetable are being questioned by Augustine's panel, also will appear at the hearing.

The third witness will be Joe Dyer, chairman of NASA's Aerospace Safety Advisory Panel.
