“We are very pleased to see strong bi-partisan support in Congress for the nation’s human exploration program and recognition of the significant progress that has been made in developing Orion in just four years, ” said John Karas, Lockheed Martin vice president and general manager, Human Space Flight. “We commend the cooperation between Congress and the Administration in achieving this important step to assure continued U.S. leadership in space.”
