    Northrop and Boeing were expected to win the contract to build the ‘Orion’ moon module because they ran the Apollo program in the 1960‘s. They have experience moon landing. The contract for the 8.1 billion dollar contract ended up with Lockheed-Martin on August 31, 2006.
    We could probably chalk it all up to Mike Griffin. Who is he?
    He walked into the White House on 9/15/2005 and presented his plan to replace the dangerous space shuttle. Two of the shuttles disintegrated and exploded killing their occupants.
    Mike Griffin is a rocket scientist and has a Masters Degree in Business Administration.
    That may be why his new plan is to use rockets to replace the poorly designed shuttles. It may also be why approval was given without any figures or information on how to pay for it.
    Griffin’s new fleet of rockets will be a rework of rockets used during the moon shots in the 1960’s.
    The rockets will draw on design information and experience the United States has had in building and deploying nuclear weapons.
    Mike Griffin served as CEO of In-Q-Tel. In-Q-Tel is described by it’s first CEO Gilman Louie as being formed "...to ensure that the CIA remains at the cutting edge of information technology advances and capabilities."
    Mike Griffin is taking NASA ‘Back to the Past’.
    Several board members of In-Q-Tel apparently have connections with Lockheed-Martin Corporation.
    Why should we continue to pay these folks to do this? What happened to the NASA we used to know?

    Perhaps this is the NASA we all know.
