Washington, D.C. – Today, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden confirmed what Houston officials had long feared. Houston, the home of human space flight, has been shunned by President Obama’s administration which has chosen New York, Florida, Washington, DC and California to be the future homes of America’s shuttle fleet.

“With this White House I always expect the worst and am rarely disappointed,” said U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady (R-Texas). “What this decision won’t change is the legacy of the men and women of Johnson Space Center who have changed the face of manned space flight forever. Their innovation, dedication — and even the loss of loved ones in pursuit of their mission — will live far beyond the tawdry politics of today.”
