Obama to hold Space Summit April 15

The White House has announced that President Obama will host a conference in Florida on April 15 that is focused on his new space policy.

“The president’s ambitious new strategy pushes the frontiers of innovation to set NASA on a more dynamic, flexible, and sustainable trajectory that can propel us on a new journey of innovation and discovery,” the White House said in a statement Sunday.

“After years of underinvestment in new technology and unrealistic budgeting, the president’s plan will unveil an ambitious plan for NASA that sets the agency on a reinvigorated path of space exploration,” the statement said.

“The conference will focus on the goals and strategies in this new vision, the next steps, and the new technologies, new jobs, and new industries it will create.”
