Quotes

"Under the original plan we were, as of now, about two years away from conducting the first launch of Antares with the second-generation propulsion system... I certainly think we can short that interval, but at this point I don't know by how much" said David Thompson, Orbital Sciences President and CEO
...An unfortunate fact, especially after leading astronomers have warned about the Earth " has been left with a huge blind spot for potentially devastating comet strikes after the only dedicated comet-spotting program in the southernsouthern hemisphere lost its funding"
The first, uncrewed test flight will be a 4.5-hour trip sending Orion around the Earth twice at a distance of 36,000 miles, or "farther than any crewed spacecraft has gone in more than 40 years" according to the space agency
"My concern was that [sequencing the human genome] would do to biology the same thing the space shuttle did to planetary astronomy, which would be to eat up all the funds and siphon money away from other projects" Botstein said
