“The Commercial Spaceflight Federation (CSF) commends NASA’s Fiscal Year 2021 budget request, which outlines an ambitious national space program and recognizes public-private partnerships as fundamental to achieving these challenging goals across NASA’s portfolio. This budget would enable a sustainable and comprehensive exploration architecture with key elements including commercializing low Earth orbit, establishing a sustainable, long-term presence on the surface of the Moon with commercial companies, and committing to sending American astronauts to Mars. CSF’s more than 80 member organizations are proud to partner with NASA to provide innovative solutions to advance the state of the art, enhance safety, and improve affordability in space exploration. We look forward to continuing to bring the best of commercial industry to support America’s leadership in space.”
