“We are going to the moon, this time in a very sustainable way and it is with commercial and international partners so when we talk about going for humanity, it really is.”
“I’m really proud to be a part of American space program, and when I say it’s an American space program it really is. We have this vehicle right outside my window, ARTEMIS one. All of the States in our wonderful great nation are represented, in the ground or on the flight systems, and so, when we talk about America’s rocket and we talk about America space program it really truly is that.”
