A Brave, Classy Woman

For the wife of the shuttle Columbia to say “fix it and fly again” is amazing. What class and vision. She’s a remarkable person.

For those who don’t know, I’m a big proponent of scientific research in general and NASA in particular. To me, it’s not surprising that we’ve had another shuttle accident. Funding for NASA has been inadequate for well over a decade. We shouldn’t be surprised at the failure of “doing more with less”, a strategy that fails daily in the business and political worlds.

We should fly the shuttles again, but we should also spend significant dollars developing a modern replacement for this wonderful aviation dinosaur.
