Best SSP manager there's been. Absolutely a hero to all us shuttle huggers.

OK guys enough already, this is over the top. 
Chris, you should know that I visited York a couple of years ago and thought about looking you up, but decided the NASA bosses wouldn't approve.  If I get back across the pond to beautiful Yorkshire I will rectify that problem.

Glad to see you continuing your Blog, Mr Hale. There is virtually no one I respect more. And you are 100% percent correct, Sir in your recent statement about the entrenched, stubborn attitudes all over the Net. Some of them are downright childish!! I used to be a regular ‘Space Blogger’, but rarely contribute anymore. Partly because I have little to say any longer, but partly because it gets real, real OLD clashing with anonymous, self-appointed experts who label you a fool for not adhering to their fantasy space program of sometimes weird & wonderful technologies/vehicles. You can be labeled as a ‘Retro Spam-Canner’ or worse. Their view is trash everything even remotely ‘heritage’ in nature (Shuttle-Derived,
EELV and Apollo-style Crew Capsules are the chief moustache-twirling villains here
) and build amazing, all-new ships – with the ‘piles of cash’ the villains are consuming!

How do you reach out from the real world to people like this? After all, many of these folk are space-loving American taxpayers (I’m not) and possible future Space Venture Capitalists? Surely the eventual reality is somewhere between Constellation and the 'Sci-Fi Re-Usable Superspaceship' crowd? Matt.

Now that would be beyond the realm of human cool - having Wayne Hale unexpectedly turn up at your door! :D

I live in the UK too....just sayin'! ;D

Not really. You're literally a superstar with shuttle fans, and rightly so.

Please do sir! I live next to the Minster Cathedral - our Gothic VAB. You can see my roof in this photo:



Anyway, I don't want to derail the thread, so I'll send you a personal message (top bar on the forum page, "My Messages") later today.

Bet you never thought of yourself as a superstar, did you?
Bet you never knew a segment of the unwashed public actually hung on your every word in all those press conferences, did you?
Kinda scary, isn't it? :)

All kidding aside, what you're seeing here revolves around a fading concept... trust and respect.

Thanks for your service and welcome to the forum.

How about a quick Q&A with Wayne Hale ?

Wayne, would you give it a try ? You get to choose the topic ... as long as it is NASA/commercial HSF and space exploration ! ;)

Chris ?

Welcome Mr Hale.

You will feel at home here. There's a surprising amount of us here (I'm SOMD). Large amount of KSC and also MOD, Orbiter etc.

They do a very good job, very transparent.

Omg. I was at my parents place for the weekend, with an underwear manifest of two pcs. Needless to say I almost ran out while I read Wayne's post.

Welcome!

Thanks for the publicity folks.  I look forward to having much less constrained conversations than I had in the future.  And look, I even registered with NASASpaceFlight.com!  So here is my first post on your website.

Wayne-  Welcome aboard!  I enjoyed a lengthy conversation with you, Ross Tierney and others after the HSF Committee hearing in Cocoa  Beach last year.  I am looking forward to reading your thoughts in the forum and on your Wordpress site! (I was one of the speakers during open mike time at the HSF hearing)


Regards,

Brian Hathaway

New posting

Thanks for the reminder; here's the permalink:
http://waynehale.wordpress.com/2010/10/01/until-the-fat-lady-sings/

The title -- "Until the Fat Lady Sings" -- kind of sums things up, but this is the line that underscores the "problem" now:

Just watched Mr Hale's Mission Ops lecture to Dr Hoffman's MIT Systems Design class in 2005.  Interesting to hear his thoughts, and the other guest lecturers.  Especially in light of what's happened to STS and CxP since then.
