Obama’s Space Cuts Threaten 9,000 Shuttle Jobs

President Barack Obama’s proposed budget promises to send thousands of U.S. space workers to a new frontier: the unemployment line.

The president is proposing to shut down NASA’s Constellation program and contract the work to private companies. Constellation’s mission is to return man to the Moon, and ultimately Mars. The budget provision, if passed, could mean the loss of tens of thousands of jobs across the country and an end to our nation’s role as the leader in space technology and exploration.

Tell Congress to vote yes for the continuation of NASA’s manned space program and to protect American jobs.
