Move To Save Space Shuttle



With jobs hanging in the balance, some in Florida - with support from some in Congress - are pushing for an extension of the space shuttle program until 2015.

The aging spaceships are due for retirement. Their replacements have not yet been developed, putting manned space on hiatus until they are.

An estimated 7,000 jobs are at stake.
