Quotes

"It would change the world for a price of a cup of coffee and wait, there's more.  It wouldn't be the work of a guy like Galileo or Copernicus or Kepler, these are famous names in astronomy, or Isaac Newton or Einstein.  It would be the work of all of us.  It would be the work of all of us taxpayers and citizens of the earth who participate in this.  Now it might be U S taxpayers nominally, but guarantee you the European Space Agency, Canadian Space Agency, almost certainly the Indian Space Research Organization, the Roscosmos, everybody would have a small part on this mission.  Everybody would be involved.  And if we were to find evidence of life it would change the world.  Change the world."
...for all of the wrong reasons, the rationale of these experiments is quite solid," NASA research scientist Eduardo Almeida told Live Science. "One of the things we need to understand is how reproduction in vertebrates works. We have very little information about this."
"The link is established, the prescribed commands have been conducted in accordance with the plan" Oleg Nikolayevich Ostapenko, chief official of Roscosmos was quoted as saying to Russia Today
"Under any circumstances, we will surely carry out 90 percent of the planned program" Ostapenko told the news agency
