curious rumour about JWST and the Senate: supposedly major testing of JWST integration is being moved to Johnson Space Center and Marshall is also pickingup some significant system integration action
don’t know enough history to know if this is an actual change in plans, nor can I confirm it at this stage
interesting bit of politicking if true, now we have to see if it does the trick
PS: haven’t seen full Senate appropriations bill – think they only released the summary, but, $500M is cut from NASA and the Senate Launch System is funded – so what was cut?
Also NSF and NIST are cut to get total appropriations in line – but what?
