Shuttle News: March 2014 Archives

It's Time To Retire The Shuttle, John Logsdon, 16 October 2008, Washington Post

"The shuttle is also very expensive to operate; this year's shuttle budget is close to $3 billion. If the United States continues to spend that money on flying the shuttle beyond 2010, it will take even longer to develop a replacement vehicle, further delaying U.S. plans to venture beyond low Earth orbit. ... The space shuttle is a remarkable technological achievement, but replacing it soon is the best path to the future. We should not let false pride or international tensions get in the way of an intelligent approach to exploring the final frontier."

Keith's note: John Logsdon was for shutting down the Space Shuttle program - before he thought it was "stupid".
