National Space Society Position on Human Spaceflight Committee Report

The National Space Society has just released a position statement on the Human Spaceflight Committee’s Review of U.S. Human Space Flight Plans Committee Summary Report.

In part, the NSS position is that it:

  • agrees with the Commission that NASA needs and deserves at least $3 Billion more per year in order to accomplish the planned missions. NSS further asserts that NASA should receive this level of funding, as NASA has stimulated the economy like no other agency, stimulated American youth to seek higher education, shored up America‚Äôs edge in technology, enhanced our defense, and established American prestige around the world.
  • supports the development of a family of cargo and crew transportation options to Low Earth Orbit and beyond.
  • agrees that ISS should be extended

Ad Astra,
Jim Plaxco, NSS Director
