Mike Griffin's Speech to Congress

Here is the transcript to Mike Griffin's speech to the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies on the 2008 NASA budget.

This was a nice tidbit:

In 1963, President Kennedy visited Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama and posed the following question: "I know there are lots of people now who say, 'Why go any further in space?' When Columbus was halfway through his voyage, the same people said, 'Why go on any further? What will we possibly find? What good will it be?' And they want to stop now. I believe the United States of America is be first in space. And the only way we are going to be first in space is to work as hard as we can here and all across the country."
