Annual funding for the US government expired on September 30, 2013 and Congress was unable to enact a short-term continuing resolution to fund critical Government operations.

Therefore, we are required to cancel your upcoming Astronaut Appearance event.

We regret the inconvenience this has caused and hope that we may have an opportunity to work with you for a future event.

Sincerely,
Trent A. Hebert
Manager, Flight Crew Operations
