Quotes

"We need to have an honest conversation about the fiscal challenges we face. While you can always debate the exact budgetary needs of an agency, one thing is clear: there is simply no way the FAA can implement NextGen, and recapitalize our aging infrastructure, and continue to provide our current level of services without making some serious tradeoffs. Even with short-term choices, there will be significant impacts to our budget and the services we can provide. We need to have the flexibility to make investment choices that further the health of our airspace system, and not make choices simply because they might be politically popular. A year ago it was [already] clear to me that there was a sense of urgency, and many parts of the industry were willing to entertain some approaches that might have been ruled out previously. The past year has only sharpened my own sense of urgency. However, I fear there is a level of complacency that's developing that business as usual might work. It won't. And complacency is a mistake. If we don't come up with a concrete plan, and if we don't do it collectively, I'm afraid we'll be signing up for more instability and uncertainty—which is exactly what we all say we don't want."
Yet it is the unknown, often smaller, untracked objects that pose the biggest threat. "If a spacecraft is lost due to being hit by debris, the odds are the satellite will be hit by something the trackers can't see" said Nicholas Johnson, NASA chief scientist (retired) for orbital debris at Johnson Space Center in Houston
"Every male student I talked to had a story about intervening on the dance floor or at a party, mostly by just saying hello to someone who looked like a target of unwanted aggressive attention."
