Ahh. The perputaul dilemma. Because their skills are not as good as the JPL. Then there's the other reasons open to speculation.

Haven't had much to do with Drago apart from seeing him coach a couple of years ago. He is very passionate about what he does. no doubt. An in my opinion he is one that will sort the wheat from the chaff.
