Urban Myths About Access to Space
Rep. Mo Brooks joins leaders asking NASA for answers to Russian rocket engine ban, Huntsville Times
“In a statement released today, Brooks repeated his often-stated charge that America would not be without human spaceflight capability if the Obama administration had not cancelled the Constellation rocket program shortly after taking office in 2010. That decision, plus an earlier decision by the George W. Bush administration to retire the space shuttle and replace it with Constellation, has left America buying rides to the station from Russia while three companies race to provide American-owned access to space.”
Keith’s note: More imaginary facts from Mo Brooks. Even if Constellation was still in place NASA’s commercial crew provider would fly crews sooner and vastly more cheaply than NASA ever could.
