We have at our disposal a captive audience of schoolchildren. Some of  them don’t go to the blackboard or raise their hand ‘cause they think  they’re going to be wrong. I think you should say to these kids, “You  think you get it wrong sometimes, you should come down here and see how  the big boys do it.” I think you should tell them you haven’t given up  hope and that it may turn up, but, in the meantime, you want NASA to put  its best people in a room and you want them to start building Galileo  6. Some of them will laugh and most of them won’t care but for some,  they might honestly see that it’s about going to the blackboard and  raising your hand. And that’s the broader theme.
