[i]Deputy Administrator Lori Garver said here July 7 that NASA will run another internal cost analysis of the shuttle-derived stack chosen by Administrator Charles Bolden last month, in parallel with an outside evaluation by Booz Allen. Both should be done "by late July or early August," she says, clearing the way for a final decision "by the end of the summer."
"We're going through a very difficult period of time as a nation," Bolden said during the run up here for the final space shuttle launch. "The decision on the heavy-lift is going to be a... very critical and very expensive decision for the nation. It's got to carry us into this next era that we hope will extend longer than the 30 years of shuttle. So we're close to making a decision on the configuration, but not quite there."[/i]
