+ - Discontent over 2014 NASA Space Launch System, commercial crew funding->

Submitted by MarkWhittington
MarkWhittington (1084047) writes "The $17.65 billion appropriations for NASA in the 2014 omnibus spending bill have been generally hailed as a “big win” for the space agency and its high profile programs. There are, however, some dissenting opinions.

Both the heavy lift Space Launch System, NASA's rocket that is designed to send astronauts beyond low Earth orbit, and the commercial crew program, developing government financed, commercially operated spacecraft, seem to have experienced funding shortfalls in the 2014 NASA budget."
