Quotes

"I'm not sure that I'm optimistic that we will do those things, but I know that we need to" said former NASA administrator Mike Griffin
"I like getting kids excited about doing something special with their lives," Ross said. "Not everyone will be an astronaut, but I believe we're all put on this Earth by God for a purpose. It's our job to figure out what that purpose is."
"But for other destinations, SLS lets you do things we could only dream of before – like collecting samples from the geysers of Saturn’s moon Enceladus."
