This sort of pressure to launch the SLS/Orion with an astronaut crew is not good. About every 15 to 20 years, NASA succumbs to "launch fever" instead of paying attention to safety. The result is the loss of a spacecraft and crew.
EXACTLY what I'm talking about! If Queen Isabelle and Columbus had succumbed to this Nervous Nellie hand-wringing he would never have sailed. This attitude simply sucks road apples.

I'm just wondering if Trump believes the moon landings were fake, and his pressure on NASA is about showing we can't make it to the moon. Or maybe he believes we are being sandbagged, and this pressure is his way of trying bring the truth to light. Either way, this is great to see from Trump, space travel was not something I expected him to be pushing, but I'm glad he is.
