What Dr. Griffin Meant To Say - Part II

Message from the NASA Administrator Regarding Space Station and Space Shuttle Comments

"I'm sure you've seen the press coverage concerning my supposed comments on the space shuttle and International Space Station, beginning last Wednesday. I've been in Russia since the day the article came out, and have therefore missed most of the reaction to it, but I've received enough e-mail to realize that I didn't handle the situation well and have left some hurt feelings behind. So, I thought I should make the effort to clarify the situation, and this e-mail to all of you is the best way I know to do it."

"Q: In retrospect, was the shuttle program a mistake?
A: My opinion is that it was.

Q: Was the space station a mistake?
A: I would not have built the space station. We are now trying to change the path while doing as little damage as we can."
