Canada's Spaceflight Program future uncertain

1 post in this topic

While Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield works and tweets from orbit, his country's space agency is engaged in battles on the ground.

In recent months, the Canadian Space Agency has faced budget cuts and an aerospace review that said it was suffering from "ad hocery" in government funding and planning.

It's still unclear how this will affect Canada's human spaceflight program. The agency remains committed to International Space Station work until at least 2020, which keeps the door open for two trainees awaiting flights to the orbital laboratory. But as the CSA faces a large drop in funding between 2013 and 2015, agency president Steve MacLean has declined to comment on where cuts could fall.
