A Dialogue for the September 12th World

Hold Everything! Truth From NASA!

Posted by Mark on September 28, 2005

The space shuttle and International Space Station — nearly the whole of the U.S. manned space program for the past three decades — were mistakes, NASA chief Michael Griffin said Tuesday.

In a meeting with USA TODAY’s editorial board, Griffin said NASA lost its way in the 1970s, when the agency ended the Apollo moon missions in favor of developing the shuttle and space station, which can only orbit Earth.

“It is now commonly accepted that was not the right path,” Griffin said. “We are now trying to change the path while doing as little damage as we can.”

Be still my heart. Could NASA be getting back on track, after over 30 years in a very expensive wilderness? It’s possible. Hard to imagine how long Michael Griffin will last as a bureaucrat if he keeps telling the truth, though.
