NASA Chief Vents Frustration in Leaked E-mail
By Tariq Malik
Senior Editor

HOUSTON — NASA chief Michael Griffin lamented the mandated 2010 retirement of the agency's space shuttle fleet and the all-too-likely possibility that U.S. astronauts will be absent from the International Space Station for extended periods in the future in a leaked e-mail intended for top advisors.

Space X - Falcon 1 launch fails to separate second stage.



Plan Going Forward


It was obviously a big disappointment not to reach orbit on this flight . On the plus side, the flight of our first stage, with the new Merlin 1C engine that will be used in Falcon 9, was picture perfect. Unfortunately, a problem occurred with stage separation, causing the stages to be held together. This is under investigation and I will send out a note as soon as we understand exactly what happened.

The most important message I’d like to send right now is that SpaceX will not skip a beat in execution going forward. We have flight four of Falcon 1 almost ready for flight and flight five right behind that. I have also given the go ahead to begin fabrication of flight six. Falcon 9 development will also continue unabated, taking into account the lessons learned with Falcon 1. We have made great progress this past week with the successful nine engine firing.


As a precautionary measure to guard against the possibility of flight 3 not reaching orbit, SpaceX recently accepted a significant investment. Combined with our existing cash reserves, that ensures we will have more than sufficient funding on hand to continue launching Falcon 1 and develop Falcon 9 and Dragon. There should be absolutely zero question that SpaceX will prevail in reaching orbit and demonstrating reliable space transport. For my part, I will never give up and I mean never.

Thanks for your hard work and now on to flight four.

But what will the trustafarians do with all that spare time on their hands?  Move to Hawaii and grow more super-potent pot plants!?!
