Posted: Mon, Jun 13, 2005, 8:28 AM ET (1228 GMT)
The governor of Florida created a panel Friday that will study how that state can maintain a leadership role in space exploration and business. Gov. Jeb Bush established the Commission on the Future of Space and Aeronautics, to be chaired by Lt. Gov. Toni Jennings, with a charter to study what the state should do to maintain its leadership in space activities given the changes in both civil and commercial spaceflight. The panel's 18 members include representatives from state businesses and organizations, as well as former NASA and military officials. The panel's final report is due by January 2006.
