Quotes from the news wire:
We’re getting ready to launch what will be the largest rocket ever launched in the history of humanity, it’s going to have a bigger payload capacity and a bigger faring to carry larger objects than we’ve ever been able to put into orbit. This particular rocket, the Space Launch System is going to take us to the moon, and it’s going to take us on to Mars.
The reason we do it is because we want to improve human lives on Earth, and if you look at the small amount that NASA’s budget is … we’re talking about one-half of one percent of the federal budget, and you look at the return on that investment, nASA has blazed a trail that has improved the human condition on Earth, and we want to continue that type of investment.
That particular path that put NASA on the exploration [science] and discovery [has] not changed, nASA has hundreds of billions of dollars of assets in orbit, and we have human lives in orbit. Space is so important to the human condition on Earth. We are now at a point if we were to lose space, it would be an existential threat to the United States of America, and what that means is: it has to be defended.
