An honest question from the audience set the tone. “We’ve got a rocket assembled in the VAB ready for launch. Are we going to launch it?” came the inquiry from a veteran space worker.
“Well, that’s a good question,” said the Band Leader. “Since the program of record will not be recommended by the Augustine commission, I don’t see any point in continuing with the launch.”
And that, my friends, is a very interesting comment. We await the final report of the Augustine Commission at the end of August. The next event in the play is scheduled for 14 September at Gabrielle Gifford’s Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics.
