     "Our space program is not one World-Class operation; it is layers upon layers of World-Class operations. It is made up government professionals, astronauts, spacecraft contractors, logisticians, university researchers, policy analysts and yes, politicians who see the national worth to our society of the enormous and complex effort. Together, they make the impossible happen."
