Cooler heads have prevailed? Sorry to say, that is not the case, because it would have given hope to the idea that some semblance of intelligent decision making could still possibly be undertaken by the minions. No, the Hubble repair mission will be backed by Endeavour waiting on Pad 39B not because it is and always was the right thing to do, but because Ares-1X simply won't be ready for it's fake test by then.
In fact, the Aries delays are now pushing the already compressed and unrealistic schedule for a first manned flight to ISS in...wait for it...2017. Good luck keeping those jobs in Florida after all.
