What in another year might have been a routine hearing about NASAs annual budget request turned into a heated, and sometimes partisan, exchange about the agencys internal security practices and the broad state of the U.S. human spaceflight program.
In theory, the purpose of the April 8 hearing of the House Appropriations, commerce, justice, science subcommittee was to allow lawmakers charged with writing NASAs 2015 appropriation to ask questions about the roughly $17.5 billion budget request the agency released in March.
In practice, the hearing was a double feature that paired a review of security practices at NASA field centers, spearheaded by subcommittee chairman Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.), with a budget briefing from NASA Administrator Charles Bolden. In an unusual twist, Bolden was formally sworn in by Wolf before testifying.

Wolf then switched the subject to NASAs human spaceflight program, asking Charles Boden about its status.
Bolden responded with hesitation, then was embolden to ask,"You mean the Apollo Moon program?" /SARC
NASA has become like ALL federal gub mint agencies.
Bloated worthless and afraid to do anything other than f-ing moose limb outreach.
What a crock.
