Low Earth Orbit A Mistake Says Griffin

NASA Official Questions Agency's Focus on the Shuttle, NY Times

"NASA's administrator, Michael D. Griffin, says the current period of space exploration will come to be seen as a mistake. "Viewed from the point of history several decades out," he said in an interview, "the period where the United States retreated from the Moon and quite deliberately focused only on low Earth orbit will be seen, to me, a mistake."

Editor's note: Every time Mike Griffin says things like this about the Space Shuttle and/or the ISS he tries to wiggle out of what he said after the fact. For someone who almost always stands behind what he says this is rather curious.
