This Thursday—April 1, April Fool’s Day—the space subcommittee of the Senate Commerce Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing on NASA’s proposed FY2005 budget. NASA Administrator Sean O’Keefe is the only announced witness. Given that Sen. Sam Brownback (R-KS), who chairs the subcommittee, is also a co-sponsor of the Senate version of the Hubble resolution (S. Res. 324), one can expect the topic to come up during the hearing. The hearing will be at 2:30 pm in Russell 253, and will be webcast on the committee’s web site.
