A New Vision (for NASA) - George Bush (announced on 2004-01-14):

Note the sentence:
"The Shuttle's chief purpose over the next several years will be to help finish assembly of the International Space Station. In 2010, the Space Shuttle, after nearly 30 years of duty, will be retired from service."
President George W. Bush
January 14, 2004

And in fact, Shuttle operations were extended to July of 2011. So, do you still believe President Obama 'cancelled' The Shuttle/manned space flight/the space program (whatever that phrase really means), etc...?

Now, President Obama did propose and support cancelling the Constellation Program, but when congress ultimately agreed with that, it led to its similarly questionable offspring, the Space Launch System...

Why not to like the Space Launch System (SLS):

...About me:

This is my only personal Web page1, but a search on 'frank glover,'2 'frankglover' and 'delphinus' via Google and other search engines, will produce several hits related to me. (And quite a few that aren't.) A search through Google Usenet newsgroup archives on my old e-mail addresses with Delphi, Freewwweb and now at Juno (often under the alias of 'Joann Evans') will produce numerous hits in the archived Usenet newsgroup messages. (Joann Evans is a real person, but she is not responsible for any postings made by myself under her name.) See also 'Cetacean Bibliography' and 'Life on Mars.' Google search on my frequent blogpost alias; delphinus100.

How old am I? It happens that I was born the very same day as this person (no, I'm not a fan of his, but it's a useful reference), which also makes me exactly three years younger than this person, and we all share a 'birthdate' with this character......
 

(1  And the frankglover.com domain name is available now, but it once belonged to this Indianapolis jazz musician....)

(2  No relation to this Glover, this Glover, this Glover, this Glover, this Glover [but like him, I'm a ham radio operator], this Glover, this Glover, or, as far as I know, any of these Glovers, or these Glovers, though a good friend [ this picture, this picture, this picture and this picture ] believes I resemble this man. [as he appeared back in his Battlestar Galactica days and not to be confused with this man]. But the real me can be seen here [2001] and here [2008].)

Also: Me in a partial ISS mock-up (1998), and with dolphins 'Dee' (this picture and this picture, 1975 photos by Terry Glynn) and 'Florida.' (this picture, 1974 photo by Shelly Hannon)

   Space travel/exploration/commercialization have always been my primary interests. My interest in dolphins branched from that, due to the possibility that they are an intelligent life form that we share this planet with. Combining these ideas, my old Freewwweb username, [and instant message nicknames] 'delphinus,' is the constellation of the dolphin. For details, click here, here, here and here. (Other meanings for 'Delphinus')
