Aero-News Quote of the Day
“I am disheartened by the administration’s ever-changing goals and their lack of justifications and details. The goal of NASA’s human spaceflight program is to go to Mars and beyond on a path that includes returning to the Moon or asteroids as necessary. This stepping-stone approach for our exploration out of low-earth orbit is clear and unambiguous. America is a nation of explorers, and space is the next frontier. While federal budgets will continue to be uncertain, Congressional support for NASA’s exploration mission is clear and unwavering.” Source: House Science Committee chair Lamar Smith (R-TX), to NASA administrator Charles Bolden during a hearing Wednesday.
