MSFC Chief Says Agency Workers Disappointed In Budget
Huntsville, AL – The head of the Marshall Space Flight Center says agency workers are disappointed in a proposed budget cut that would end work on the Constellation program.
But Robert Lightfoot said Tuesday that those working on Constellation in Huntsville could be rolled over into other new programs being considered. He said there are about 2,500 NASA and contract employees working on the Constellation program to send astronauts back to the moon.
The Marshall director said it's uncelar what impact the budget impact would have on the Huntsville teams. He said the next six months should be interesting as the budget process unfolds in Congress.
Lightfoot spoke at a news conference at Marshall.
