The Better Idea Syndrome
We have encountered a big problem with trying to support a Society and still
carry out the business of the Artemis Project. We have a well-defined
program to put together, and can't afford the time to review every lengthy
proposal that comes in for alternative approaches. When it comes to Better
Ideas For How To Get To The
Moon, we're well into the old saw from the Apollo Program: "The better is the
enemy of the good."
This is a real program, affecting the lives and livlihood of thousands
in many organizations and companies. We have to assure that "official" public
relations carry a consistent and accurate message.
Everyone working on the program has tremendous latitude in deciding how
things done. However, redefining the program to match your own personal tastes
and altruisms is not an option. The story of what the Artemis Project is, how
it's organized, and how it works is complex enough without having a loose cannon
shooting at the wheelhouse.
Seriously, we enthusiastically encourage anyone with a Better Idea
to get homo sap into space to follow his own calling; but not in the name of the
