Will Democrats get their act together on space policy?

Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., is a leading lawmaker on space policy, so when he hints at a compromise over NASA's future course, it's worth listening. The Orlando Sentinel's Robert Block deconstructs a letter that Nelson sent to colleague Barbara Mikulski that would pick up the pace on developing a heavy-lift rocket, give careful support to commercial launch providers such as SpaceX ... and perhaps deal the death blow to NASA's Ares 1 rocket development plan. I fully agree with Block's last line: "Stay tuned."
