More Space Convergence

The U.S. Senate Commerce Committee will propose a plan to the White House on July 15 that would accelerate development of a Heavy Lift Vehicle (HLV) and human exploration missions while promoting the transition to commercial service to the International Space Station (ISS), according to this MSNBC article. Of course, the devil is in the details, but hopefully this will lead to a sensible compromise that retains the innovative initiatives in the Obama space policy while strengthening the human exploration plan in an affordable and sustainable manor.
