NASA Administrator's Statement on Chilean Miners Rescue

"On behalf of the entire NASA family, I want to ask that our heartfelt thoughts and prayers continue to go out to the courageous miners, their families and friends, and the dedicated people who have been working to safely reach those who are still trapped underground."

NASA contractors dispute statements about access, Washington Post

"During oral arguments, Katyal told justices that the questions are justified on national security grounds because ID badges worn by contractors give them access to JPL and all other NASA facilities. "It's such an important credential that it would allow them to get within, for example, six to 10 feet of the space shuttle as it's being repaired and readied for launch," Katyal said. In a letter sent late last week to Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and NASA Administrator Charles F. Bolden Jr., Robert M. Nelson, the lead plaintiff in the case, demanded a retraction of Katyal's statement, calling it "an insult to all of our co-workers at Kennedy Space Center who labor continuously to protect the safety of all NASA launch vehicles."
