That is a big question. I think a lot had to do with Kennedy (Democrat) program and NASA administration didn't help the situation. In this ATL Nixon is basically following Eisenhower so you have a VP following in as now President so I see a lot of previous administration policies followed. However we could see a more measured response since with Kennedy he felt under the gun to pick something far enough out that we could catch up and Surpass the Soviet's. In this ATL we probably don't feel as so much under the gun with the first satellite and first person in space. Even though we lag in boosters right now.
