NASA Administrator Mike Griffin: Risk and Rewards in Commercial Space

“I would like to take this opportunity to speak about something of interest to me and many of you assembled here: the role of prizes, such as NASA’s Centennial Challenges, in spurring innovation through competition. I also want to talk about how and why NASA not only should, but must, pursue and nurture appropriate partnerships with the emerging commercial space sector when it is reasonably within the grasp of such firms to meet our needs. I believe that these issues are important, and I have been consistent in my emphasis upon them throughout my tenure as Administrator.”
