We sit at a key moment to influence the direction for space with the new Administration and Congress. While there is much bipartisan support for NASA, major budget cuts are coming down the line that may severely impact space science and exploration.
We must speak up—right now—to demonstrate public support for space exploration.
Funding for our Advocacy program is critical. The more funding we have, the more effective we can be, which ultimately translates into more missions, more science, and more exploration.
We have a plan to engage the new Administration and the Congress to build support for space science and exploration. And we need to increase our investment in our Washington, D.C. operations.
How much we increase our D.C. operations depends on you. So does our ability to provide new educational tools and to be present at major space symposiums and meetings around the world.
It’s a small investment now that could pay off in a major way. Our future at Mars, the Moon, Europa, and beyond depends on our ability to advocate for space over the next year.
Thank you for being part of the strong coalition speaking out for science and exploration.
