Re: How many Shuttles could have been kept operative..

WHO was president when the shuttle program ended? 2011... I guess it was OBAMA

Yep, Obama was in the chair when the clock finally stopped.

However, the alarm was set by George W Bush back in 2004, based on the 2003 findings of the Columbia Accident Investigation board. Scrapping the Shuttle program isn't an overnight job, the wheels were set in motion many years earlier.

Sorry, you can't hang this one on Obama, or the democrats. If you really want to try and politicise it, the republican government made the decision to kill the Shuttle.
