Lack of funds delaying NASA launch of new shuttle

NASA will delay because of lack of money the first manned flight of the new spacecraft designed to take astronauts back to the moon, the agency's boss says. The craft, called the Orion, will not fly until early 2015, four to six months later than planned, NASA administrator Michael Griffin told lawmakers. "We simply do not have the money available" to fly in 2014 as planned, he said.
