"We are all relieved. I know we breathe a sigh of relief when Nick, Nick Hague, Nick Hague and Christina Hammock Koch returned safely from the aborted launch but I'm very pleased because I've been bothering (NASA Administrator Jim (Bridenstine) about it. To hear that, that Nick and Christina will be headed back to space this February and the mission goes on. You'll give them our best. And of course last month the world, the world watched as NASA did the impossible again when the Insight lander touched down on Mars. And America is still the only nation on earth to safely land on Mars. Congratulations NASA. What a great day."
