Posted: Tuesday, March 30, 2021
The Coalition for Deep Space Exploration (Coalition) commends the Biden Administration on its decision to continue the National Space Council. Space is a crucial priority for the United States, and our continued commitment to leadership in space is key to maintaining national security, understanding Earth’s changing climate, expanding our knowledge in science and technology, generating economic revenue, and inspiring humanity as we explore the universe. Sustained coordination across multiple federal agencies through the National Space Council will ensure the United States can effectively address existing and emerging issues in space.
“A whole-of-government approach through a body such as the Space Council, with clear objectives stemming from the White House and informed by the broader community, will provide the necessary forum to ensure the continued coordination of space policy,” said the Coalition for Deep Space Exploration’s Acting President and CEO Andrew Allen.
