The program must be reauthorized every 45 days, and Attorney General Gonzales has said that he won't reauthorize it when it expires. There will still be surveillance, but it will require a warrant from a secret court first.

This vehicle will hopefully also replace the aging space shuttle fleet. According to NASA the vehicle will have manned missions by 2014 and moon missions by no later by 2020.
