    Letter: President Fails To See Job Value of Space

    Former NASA Administrator Mike Griffin wrote a scathing commentary piece concerning the lack of support for the Space Launch System from the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama [“Let the Games Begin,” Commentary, Aug. 29, page 19]. Mr. Griffin explained how it was the initial desire of the administration to sideline the space program in order to fund other initiatives. This idea was apparently downplayed to not detract from support during the election, but a clear pattern of foot-dragging since then is evident.
