Project Apollo (1967-72) made famous several “one-liners” during critical missions. No more critical mission ever took place than Apollo XIII, in which a fuel cell blew up and the three-man crew almost froze to death, or suffocated. Gene Kranz, captain of the White Flight Team on the ground, coined this “one-liner”: “Failure is not an option!” With that sentiment he drove his ground crew to work miracles, and thus brought three men back alive after a lesser man would have given them up for dead. Today the United States faces a peril just as dire as that of Astronauts Lovell, Haise and Swigert. And in that same Gene Kranz spirit, CNAV declares: surrender is not an option.
