Jeff Hanley's Latest Update From the Denial Zone

NASA Blog: Small Steps to a Great Adventure

"The program has built considerable momentum in the past 12 months and indeed over the last three years since we stood up as a team. We've done it for a fraction of the cost in people and resources compared to Apollo, shuttle and station through this phase. We've done it while the same supporting institutions execute our other two human spaceflight programs. We've done it with focus and resolve to transition shuttle workforce and assets to the new program in the smartest way possible. We've done it -- done it all -- with the Moon as our goal. "Design for lunar" has guided our every move, our every decision, within the bounds of what we can fiscally afford through these lean years until shuttle is retired. I know you all have seen the public discourse regarding Ares and Orion and shuttle, and understandably such discourse can temper our resolve to push forward -- if we let it."
