WASHINGTON, D.C.-Representative Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) congratulates O’Keefe for his vision of NASA’s future role in space.

“I welcome Sean O’Keefe’s commitment to make space relevant to all Americans, especially young Americans who are without a doubt the future explorers, inventors, and entrepreneurs of our nation. I can think of no better way to encourage our youth to pursue careers in science and engineering then to expose more teachers to the wonders of space. O’Keefe clearly demonstrates wisdom in instituting the Educator in Space Program. It will not only help equip our teachers to inspire a new generation of Americans to meeting the technical challenges of the 21st Century, but it will also serve to remind us that our individual dreams of traveling to the stars can become a reality.”
