MSNBC.com is reporting that:
SPACE CENTER, Houston – NASA Administrator Mike Griffin said Friday he hasn’t given up on launching another shuttle this year, despite suspending flights until the agency can stop foam insulation from snapping off and threatening the spacecraft.
He said he has set up a “tiger team” to try to solve the problem as quickly as possible. “We don’t expect this to be a long drawn-out affair,” he said by telephone from Washington in a briefing with reporters in Houston.
That’s good news, I think.
