Culberson Statement on Antares Failed Launch
Space is still a risky venture, and last night's Antares launch showed how uncertain these missions can be. I'm thankful no one was hurt, and I'm thankful for the men and women who take risks to support our space program and expand scientific knowledge. Having companies like Orbital service the International Space Station allows NASA to focus on deep space exploration. I’m confident that despite last night’s setback, their important work will continue. Photo Credit: Joel Kowsky/AP
