The more Congress is involved in space the more it becomes made of FAIL

I'm watching the House Committee on Science and Technology's hearing on the Augustine Committee's summary report. This committee hearing is a complete cluster fuck. Mr. Augustine has repeatedly said that Constellation would make a good program if it had the extra $3 billion. He even said that Ares I is safe. He is simply not defending his Committee's own findings. Even our ally Dana Rohrabacher ripped the findings apart. h2. I'll state it here now: if this continues then our national space program will never go anywhere ever again. I think we just lost our space program. The ONLY option left for an American lead expansion into space is for the private industry to route around this steaming pile of shit.
