To Kelly and Zenon,
This is a NASA-newsletter that I got yesterday, it neatly reflects
(y)our discussion which is going on.

ADMINISTRATOR GOLDIN ISSUES STATEMENT ON CHALLENGER OBSERVANCE
NOTE: The following statement by NASA Administrator Daniel
S. Goldin was released today in observance of the upcoming
10th anniversary of the Challenger accident.
"The best way to honor the memories of the crew of the
Challenger, and of all the men and women who have given their
lives to explore the frontiers of air and space, is to
continue their bold tradition of exploration and innovation.
That's what the people of NASA do every day. They push the
boundaries of knowledge and human endeavor to improve and
enrich life on Earth today and secure a better future for all
of us tomorrow.
> "I've said many times that safety is the highest
> priority at today's NASA. We will not waver from that
> commitment. But human beings have always taken great risks
> to reap great rewards. Space flight is inherently dangerous
> and every member of the NASA team understands those risks.
"I'm proud of the women and men of NASA. They're
blazing the trail to the future. They're building the
components of the International Space Station. They're
constructing spacecraft that will explore the farthest
regions of the Solar System and the universe, and satellites
that will monitor the health of our own blue planet for years
to come. They're conducting cutting edge research that will
make airplanes faster and safer, and they've made the Space
Shuttle the most capable, reliable and versatile spacecraft
in the world."
