According to nasawatch NASA has discovered that the Shuttle program is $5.6 billion over budget. How could this happen? It must have begun long before Griffin arrived at the agency. Wasn't O'Keefe supposed to clean up NASA's financial management system (remember the $5 billion cost overrun in the ISS program four years ago?)? Did he know about the problems (while still telling everyone the Shuttle would fly 28 missions by 2010) or were the people in accounting asleep at the wheel - and woke up when Griffin's people asked some hard questions? This is really disturbing. How can you overlook a $5.6 billion cost overrun?
