OpEd: Support for NASA, U.S. Space Exploration Policy

This year NASA celebrates its 50th anniversary, an event shared by the global space community as well as people around the world who have been touched by its great achievements. The United States has been a spacefaring nation for five decades and nothing symbolizes that capability better than the NASA brand. During this time other nations also have sought their own ventures in space, and young people have been inspired to become astronauts, engineers, mathematicians and rocket scientists. Now NASA has embarked on a bold new path to further the human presence in space as laid out in the U.S. Space Exploration Policy.
