On Friday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) spent the morning at Houston’s Johnson Space Center for a ceremony announcing the nine astronauts who will fly aboard NASA’s first commercial crew missions. During the visit, Cruz burnished his space credentials, noting that nearly full funding for the commercial crew program by Congress coincided with his selection as chairman of the Senate committee that oversees NASA in 2015.
