Chris, or anyone else who can do it:
Can anyone post Mike Leinbach's remarks here? It's about time somebody spoke the unvarnished truth about this mess in NASA from somebody inside NASA (oops, looks like it might be time for L2).
While it's always time for L2 (
), the comments came back from a couple of the guys we know who were in the Firing Room when he said it and posted it as part of a review of the Sim on L2. Because of that, it's impossible to get word for word quotes and thus I could only go as far as what I wrote by way of paraphrasing, as much as we know he said the line I used.
We're hoping someone had a camera phone or camcorder running due to the historic nature, then we'll transcribe it.
Mr Leinbach's brilliant, and has never made a secret about how the orbiters are retiring way before their end date.
