Obama to arrive at KSC at 1:45 p.m. April 15

This just in from KSC Bureau Chief Todd Halvorson:

President Barack Obama is scheduled to arrive at Kennedy Space Center at 1:45 p.m. on Thursday, April 15.

He'll make live remarks at 3 p.m. and depart at 3:45 p.m., the White House said.

On Thursday, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said Obama would use the visit to make a "major space policy speech." That will be followed by four panel discussions involving invited space experts.

Obama's visit will be shown on NASA TV, Bolden said.

WOW! POTUS is only going to take two hours to kill the U.S. Manned Space Program. Took us 49 years to get where we are, second to none in space. Now we will be, I guess behind India in a few years? India has all that money from outsourced U.S. jobs, now they can afford to go to the moon, although I would rather wish them to go to hell? Sick of talking to them every time I want customer service.

It was "destroyed" by Bush when he cancelled Shuttle in 2004, contracted with the Russians in 2007 to fly astronauts once Shuttle retired in 2010, and his administration ran Constellation into the ground with mismanagement.

1. So Bush cancelled it BUT the new prez DOES HAVE THE POWER to change things - and I thought that was his motto - 'CHANGE!!!

I invite him to take a drive down US1 in Titusville. See all the businesses that are no longer there. Its a sad ride. I didnt think it could get much worse from what it was but wow, what a change in a town. Maybe he could get out and talk to some of the business owners, see the fear and worry. Of course its not all his fault but he has it in his hands now. The question is why is he coming? What purpose does spending the money for Air Force One for this trip? We're adults, we dont need to see the president, we need him in his office working on the number one problem...jobs, not healthcare or anything else. Not right now.

Ya know.. if he is so worried about unemployment rates...think of what will happen once this program ends. Sure the space center will still be open for people to see what once was, but 9000 people will be jobless, and Brevard is going to plummet because we will lose one of our main attractions for tourists. Basically this is going to ruin our economy. We can thank our awesome politicians for this. =]

With the time constraints Air Force 1 WILL be landing at the Shuttle Landing Strip. Probably motorcade over to the OPF & VAB, look out at the soon to be "empty" 39A & 39B from the LCC and say goodbye to U.S. Manned Space Flight & leave. If POTUS would stop flying all over the country for two hour visits perhaps we WOULD have some money to jump start Ares & Orion? Foreign aid is 1% of the federal budget while NASA is only .07%. Something is wrong here. Mr. President, save the air miles for Air Force 1 and fly to someplace where you may be welcome, like Wall Street!

of course none of the KSC work force is invited to hear his "speach"...... we would have eaten him alive.

Well lets all hope he back peddles on this the same as he did on oil drilling! This guy is such a joke. Lori was the worst thing that could have happened to the program. Charlie is also a big embarrassment to the corp., (marine and astronaut). We have to hold the high ground against the enemies of the state, (within and without). Fly the shuttle at a reduced rate and build a state sponsored replacement, (i.e. shuttle C and Orion), until the commercial kids prove their metal. We do not need to hitch a ride with the Russians to a tin can that we paid for. The plan as proposed by the administration should have been labeled "LEO or Bust - If We Must"! What a joke!!

The time for manned space exploration is over. There is no need for it in the age of probes and robotic landers. Manned spaceflight is incredibly more expensive and dangerous, for no added scientific value. For what we'd spend to put a man on the moon again, we could launch 40 robotic experiments. It's just a pride thing, and my tax dollars are not going to some engineering welfare program just so we can feel macho about ourselves.

Face it, manned spaceflight is unnecessary in this day and age.

BUSH (Conservative Republican) KILLED THE SHUTTLE PROGRAM.

Republicans killed the economy too.

Republicans killed over 4,373 US Troops as part of the WMD SCAM which made billions in profit for the likes of Halliburton and countless other defense contractors.

Republicans killed over 655,000 civilians in Bush's Iraq WMD SCAM many who were women and children.

Bush knew you could make a pile of money for Defense Contractors invading other countrys and killing almost a million people.

Divide the Defense Contractor Profit 276 Billion by the amount of Dead US Soldiers 4,331 and you get over $60,000,000.00 profit per Dead US Soldier.

The business of killing people is way easier and lots more profitable than exploring Space.

Vote for a Republican = NO Space Program, war instead.

Brevard Republican Voters made a fatal mistake voting for Bush.

Some of the ill informed people think that there are lazy people at the space center, well they are way wrong. I used to work there and I never had a chance to be lazy. My management demanded that the prople give 8 1/2 hrs for ever 8 hrs. pay. Some days it was even worse. I remember when they put up cots in the spaces between desks and tell you to come to work and go home after the next launch, so don't feed me bovine excrement about lazy!

If these comments are from the "best & brightest" I shudder to think what would be said by the average & dull.

Shuttle was canceled Apil 1, 2005: "We cannot find any justification to continue the deficit funding of a program that has no application other that proving that with enough money America can do anything," said Bush.

What have you people done in 5 years to prepare yourselves? Most of you need to go back and read what Candidate Obama said in August of 2008. He didn't say anything about keeping the shuttle program or to continue spending on wasteful programs.

And for you "anti-government" spending and "get government out of my life" people, really only mean "except when the deficit funding means a paycheck for me every two weeks".

To paraphrase the Tea Party people who berated the man with Parkinson's: "no free handouts here buddy...you're gonna have to work". Now, a lot of you are going to be wishing that a more substantial health care law was passed.

Pathetic!

I've been wrong about a lot of things...I said Obama was gonna take our guns, he hasn't...I said Obama would destroy the economy, he's fixing it...I said Obama gave a trillion dollars to wall street, Bush actually did and under Obama it's getting paid back almost completely

So I'm probably wrong about this as well.

I have no credibility on anything, especially when I cry against socialism, yet insist we need to keep a government pork project going just so my property value doesn't go down any further.

So, I've come to the realization that it is time for me to support the President of the United States and the people who work for him who are obviously much more qualified than I to plot the future of this great country.

Obama IS trying change because the old ways did NOT deliver the results. Over and over again.
Obama did not kill the VSE, the implementation of Constellation that was chosen did kill it. It was DOA, easy to see for anyone who read the ESAS report half a decade ago.
The "Socialists" (some of you need to upgrade their semantic skills, and soon) are not responsible for sending jobs to India and China. The stock exchange system made this move inevitable.
Space cannot get cheaper AND keep all the jobs. Basic math does not allow this.
And not many people get 6 years time to find a new job/relocate (2005-2011).

And of course you could keep the Shuttle flying AND go to Moon and Mars if you got a 3% dsicount of the DOD budget for spaceflight instead. Worth mentioning.

What a joke! But then who is surprised. This president NEVER takes the chance of having an open public dialog.

So he will arrive on the KSC runway at 1:45, take 15 minutes to get to the Headq1uarters Area, spend an hour or so smoozing with the NASA high rollers, make brief remarks at 3 PM, and boogie out of town at 3:45. All on government controlled property, without any type of public interface or dialog. Why is it that some people cannot see through this phony!

To the poster Anonymous @ 3:39PM: It was NOT the Democrats who ruined your budget, your economy. With the surplus that Clinton left Bush - after "winning" his election - could have brought you Mars within 20 years, no problem.

I was just thinking. NASA still wants to use the Orion spacecraft with a commercial booster. Well, say we use the Falcon 9? The diameter of the Orion is about 15'6". The diameter of the Falcon 9 upper stage or second stage is 12'. Guess we will need an adapter between the Orion & Falcon 9? I think it would look similar to the Mercury/Atlas configuration. We could use it as a "BACK-UP" to Ares I. Come on guys, we have 39A already modified for Ares, lets USE IT!!!!

Second to none? What a joke? With the rise of the Chinese and Indian programs, the steady, workmanlike, but not flashy continuing performance of Russia's Soyuz, and vehicles like ESA Jules Verne unmanned cargo ship, NASA's human spaceflight program was already slipping into embarassing irrelevance. In some aspects, like their Progress supply ships, the Russians had already outstripped NASA a long time ago. The hopefully soon to be dead Constellation program offers nothing in the way of sustainability or even the remotest potential to reduce flight costs. The ditching of the DCX, and the cancellation of the X-33 and X-34 flight test programs all showed a NASA that has never had the slightest intention of trying to turn manned space travel into an airline-style, economically feasible endeavor. As Burt Rutan put it NASA stands for "No Adult Supervision Apparent!" The Shuttle Army has to die or the Chinese really will inherit the Solar System. Elon Musk. Burt Rutan, Robert Bigelow, and Jeff Bezos are the new American heros. You sniffling shuttle people are bureaucratic dodos that need to be put out of America's misery.

After thirty plus years of bad leadership from Presidents, politicians and political hacks who made the Manned Space Program a private reserve of political pork. and turf wars while the Public in whose name it was all done grew jaded, bored, and out of touch, what else can we expect? The hardest part is watching people who've done such miracles being asked to eat SOS while a bunch of hacks can't seem to find a spare roll of quarters to continue and honor something built and sacrificed for by our friends and Family. It sucks. But now isn't the time to cry in our beer, pat each other on the back, and retire with our memories to the sunny sands. We have work to do. Some of it hasn't been done since 1972. Some of it since 1981. But all of it still needs doing, and we are the only ones who can do it. Get involved with your kids and your friends kids, and every kid you know. Make sure that they get Math and Science while we give them the History we have lived. They say it'll be eight years before we have LEO capability back. Eight years is enough time to start bringing up and helping out the next generation, who will want, need, and support an Manned Space Program that makes them as proud as ours has made us. Teach them to vote,when their turn comes and stand up loud and proud for what they believe, rather than be put on a post it note from some political hack who'll try to tell them what they believe is expendable to political convenience. That's the job ahead, and we can't stop or slow down, unless we want the same thing done to our kid's dream that has been done to ours. It isn't a budget question, it isn't a political question. its a question of a better world for those who come after us. Isn't that what we're all about?

This is for all of the NASA nay-sayers out there in the internet ether. Man has always had a vision of exploration. We have always been trying to see what is over the next horizon. That is why America exists. It was because of a dream to explore and reap the rewards of that exploration that has made us a Nation to be envied in the world. Since the evolution of Manned Spaceflight we have made significant strides in the direction of a possible settlement on another rock in our Solar System. Spaceflight has never been easy of completely safe. Even with that , there are people who think it is important enough to risk their lives to further our education and knowledge. Who knows where and when that knowledge may become necessary for all of our safety. Robots and unmanned craft will never be able to replace the ability of a human being. After all, the robots we use now still depend on us for their operation and maintenance. Without the advances of future manned programs in the U.S , we really will become just another 3'rd world country. By the way, I am not associated with the space program.

> So much for a compromise as reported by Keith Cowling on Nasawatch...his "sources" have totalled whatever reputation he had to begin with."

What "compromise"? Keith's "compromise" called for nothing less than total surrender and return to the Bush Vision of Space Exploration, with different-looking hardware. Specifically, the "side mount" HLV being pushed by Keith's friends at MSFC. The result would be "back to the future" -- another expensive, dead-end rush to the Moon.

What "sources"? Keith likes to whine about "anonymous cowards" who disagree with him, but his own "reporting" comes entirely from anonymous cowards. When has Keith provided verifiable sources for anything?

Keith continues to believe the US space program exists solely for the benefit of those employed by the space program -- "those who are most affected," as he likes to put it. We need to put the national interest ahead of local and special interests and being willing to try things that are new, no matter how much that upsets the Old Guard at NASA Watch.

Do we really believe that those 51 million dollar seats on the Russian rockets are going to be that price when we need them? Maybe they will be 70 or 80 million. How about this for an option? They tell us that all the missions this year are scheduled and we can't fly until next year. Do we want to leave them up there alone? These are the same people we almost went to nuclear war with. I was 12 years old in 1962 and and still remember being scared out of my mind. Did our President sleep through the entire Cold War? We paid for about half of the costs of the ISS, we NEED unlimited access to it. If that means extending Shuttle for a few years, it is a small price to pay for our security. God knows we spent plenty of money on a bunch of thieving bankers and inept car companies.
