Hi Sarah,
I too wanted to be an astronaught when I was young. As an engineer, I've designed some part that left the planet. I did turn down a NASA job and I have to disagree with you. We don't need to go back to the moon just yet.

Knowing that we can go there is one thing. Knowing that the time is right so we should go, is another conclusion entirely.

Sarah, we can do a lot with 140 billion dollars, and going to the moon is not at the top of my list.

My small disagreement about going to the moon does not diminish my appreciation of you and your husband. Thank you for all you give to this country.

It's no problem, Rob. I know it may not be the most practical thing to work on right now, but I'm afraid that if we never commit ourselves, we're never going back...

Rob: I admire your maturity of expression. And I'm not kidding.
