Quoted: Mary Hudson on the Challenger’s Ongoing Legacy



“The position it leaves us in now, because we kept the old bus going and didn’t invest in a more efficient, more modern system, is that we’re stuck buying rides from the Russians,” says Dartmouth’s Mary Hudson in a Concord Monitor story about the explosion of the shuttle Challenger 30 years ago and its ongoing effect on American spaceflight.

Hudson is the Eleanor and Kelvin Smith Distinguished Professor of Physics.
