WASHINGTON (RNN) - Former NASA administrator Daniel S. Goldin released the following statement Jan. 16, 1996 in observance of the 10th anniversary of the space shuttle Challenger explosion:
"The best way to honor the memories of the crew of the Challenger, and of all the men and women who have given their lives to explore the frontiers of air and space, is to continue their bold tradition of exploration and innovation. That's what the people of NASA do every day. They push the boundaries of knowledge and human endeavor to improve and enrich life on Earth today and secure a better future for all of us tomorrow.
"I've said many times that safety is the highest priority at today's NASA. We will not waver from that commitment. But human beings have always taken great risks to reap great rewards. Space flight is inherently dangerous and every member of the NASA team understands those risks.
"I'm proud of the women and men of NASA. They're blazing the trail to the future. They're building the components of the International Space Station. They're constructing spacecraft that will explore the farthest regions of the Solar System and the universe, and satellites that will monitor the health of our own blue planet for years to come. They're conducting cutting edge research that will make airplanes faster and safer, and they've made the Space Shuttle the most capable, reliable and versatile spacecraft in the world."
