I appreciate the need to let contracts to acquire long-lead items. But... The degree of tone-deafness by NASA while announcing this NOW is bewildering. What are they thinking announcing a billion dollar program during a pandemic and depression?

This not new. This part of the Artemis program, which was started long before we ever heard of Covid-19. Programs like this can't stop and start every time something happens. They continue as best they can under the new circumstances.

NASA is certainly not tone deaf regarding the epidemic. They even developed a new, cheaper ventilator that's just received FDA approval.
