Richard Shelby and other allies of the office. However, even if the office remains open in the long term, there are still the questions of where else NASA will cut to make up the $20 million is planned on saving on keep the office open, as well as just what the office will do, since NASA isn’t planning any follow-ons for the foreseeable future to LRO/LCROSS.
