[ILUG] a note from john maddog hall regarding the shuttle…

Now as I see articles criticizing NASA for its lack of efforts in saving money, or its efforts of trying too hard to save money, therefore jeopardizing safety, I think back to that project manager and remember that the only break in his steely reserve that day was when the tear rolled down his face at the mention of the Challenger crew. Somehow I doubt that he, or anyone at NASA, would have given the “O.K.” to launch if they thought it did not have an acceptable chance of coming back again in one piece.
