Space station gets new scrutiny



In what is one of a series of hearings planned this year on Space Station Freedom, the Subcommittee on Space Science and Applications recently received testimony from William B. Lenoir, associate administrator of the Office of Space Flight, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, about continuing design changes and budget cutbacks to this program.

If there was one message that Lenoir wanted to leave with the subcommittee, it was that the Space Station program was still on schedule but budget cutbacks could cause significant future difficulties.
