What Bolden Actually Said at Stennis About Ares

Keith's note: This is from a NASA Watch reader - and is a partial (unofficial) transcript of what NASA Administrator Bolden said at the Stennis All Hands meeting with regard to Ares. This was the last question asked:

"QUESTION: Ares 1-X is stacked and it's ready to go. Are we going to launch it?

BOLDEN: That's a good question - and that is a question that I know everyone is muddling over. How do we explain something that was not an option offered by the Augustine Committee. We have that vehicle and the opportunity to launch it and gain data and information from it that may be helpful to future programs ... I don't know the answer today - I wish I could tell you that I knew the answer - I don't."
