“It has become much to fashion lately to compare Constellation to Apollo, with the thought of course that we don’t want to do anything that might look at all like Apollo,” said Griffin. “I wonder about that sometimes because Apollo made me pretty proud to be an American. That drive has sustained a couple of generations of space professionals. So, today we have a space policy choice confronting us. Do we want to do innovative, game-changing technologies? Or, do we want to do something that might look a little bit like Apollo?’
