I'm not sure how I acquired it but I have a document here called:

Flight Controller Interviewing & Hiring Guidelines (Rev B).pdf

Seriously can't remember where I downloaded it, probably from some forum. Should I post it? :)

it's on L2

Mr Hale requires some advice ahead of Thursday.

(PS If you do have something to say per the above, probably best to post in his comment section so he has everything in one place).

Thanks for all those who made inputs - I read them all and it was a big help.

My written testimony is turned in and I have had to work really hard to get my opening remarks down to the 5 minutes that the rules allow.  Think about what to say about the importance of space exploration in 5 minute!

Heading out to the airport shortly for my flight to Washington.  Wish me luck - and a clear mind to answer whatever questions come my way!

Clear skies, hot jets, and good luck!

Best of luck Sir! Hoping for a smooth and safe flight.

You'll walk it. We've all seen you in front of the media, calming explaining some hugely technical part of the Shuttle in a way we can all understand.

I know it's not the same thing for going in front of lawmakers, but that ability to make people want to listen to you is a God given gift.

Just watched the live webcast, thanks for posting the link!

Wayne Hale did a really nice job articulating a need for full funding of commercial crew.  Two other issues that were highlighted were ITAR reform and long-term continuation of Insurance Indemnification.

I thought the other witnesses did well, though I was annoyed by Dr. Collicott (CASIS Boardmember) spending over 1/2 his time talking about his accomplishments & career instead of the topic at hand.

Thank you Wayne for your advocacy and help.  Hopefully, Commercial crew will get full funding as you asked.

Agreed. Had it on in the background. Senator Nelson noted he was impressed with the witnesses.

Mr Hale was great, but we knew he would be.

There are several formidable moments in that recording.

Like W.H. saying (at ~50:50) that when they did that test... "we all knew that nothing was gonna happen... they would fire the foam - at the wing - and you could have won a million dollars in that room with the betting that something was gonna happen because we were all convinced - and I put myself in that category - that *nothing* was gonna happen at our RCC when they shot the foam at the wing" [my transcript may be imperfect in a few places] That came as a big surprise to me.

{ off topic, another shocking statement was by adm. G at ~50:00 with checking the underside of his car in the morning because we're dealing with some big boys here, huh... I would like a comment from Wayne on that - I know, won't gonna happen }
