    It would be a nice touch if Bridenstine brought Rogozin the gift of a trampoline.

    I was just going to say that with that most excellent looking jump suit he’s ready to do a workout on a Russian supplied trampoline.

    Reporting personally to the GD on how well the stalling of US HSF is proceeding, eh Jim. 🙁

    Looks more like a track warmup jacket than a jumpsuit, but the way the picture is cropped, who can tell?

    That’s what I meant, thanks.

  • duheagle

    It would seem not.

    Progress is always driven by strong competition. If the Russian space program had been better run during the Space Race both nations would be on Mars now.

  • duheagle

    Yes. If the Russian space program had had some macaroni, it could have had macaroni and cheese by now – if it had some cheese.

    I think he was referring to the 1960s race that could have turned out quite differently with Soviet management tweaks. I don’t know about Mars, but it seems quite likely that Apollo wouldn’t have been so quick to be axed if N1 and company had been right there in the rear view..Shuttle may have had a shot at proper development as well.

    Referring to the present though,, I agree.

    Is Bridenstine the youngest NASA administrator ever (45 years)?
    We met him last week at IAC in Bremen. Our booth was near NASA one. He came to us and asked for candies. Now our company can claim to be NASA supplier… of candies…

    He seems a down to earth guy
