This is what I meant when I said NASA is living off of its legacy. How do we change it? How do we make space economical?
Hearing Purpose:This hearing will review NASA’s past portfolio of missions, evaluate existing exploration programs, and provide a venue for consideration of potential bold and innovative missions going forward.
The title of the hearing includes the words "past," "present" and "future," but the witnesses all seem to be from the past. Glorious though that past is, this doesn't seem to me to be a good basis for discussing the future.
Well, having a witness appear from the future would be a good trick! :-)
They always put forth witnesses who will provide the answers they want to hear...
