Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

TV4.se Nyheterna newscast video: Nästa steg för USA:s rymdprogram.
TV4 Sweden's correspondent Elizabet Frerot discusses NASA's future after the space shuttle program with NASA astronauts and officials. May 16, 2011.

As I was watching Endeavour take off this morning via TV, no doubt like many of you out there, I was wondering, after 30 years of the space shuttle, what's next for our amerikanska rymdfärjeprogram with President Obama and his successors?

Fortunately, while local Miami TV stations were pondering dollops of trivialities, TV4 correspondent Elizabet Frerot was in the right place to ask the right people -the Kennedy Space Center, where NASA astronaut Nicholas Patrick and official Allard Bentel reminisce and ponder NASA's next step into deeper outer space with Lockheed Martin's Orion.



Orion Pictures sure cranked-out some great films while it existed!
