“With the countdown to the final space shuttle launch under way, we salute the accomplishments of the entire shuttle team and celebrate their invaluable contributions to our nation’s global leadership in space. The knowledge and experience of more than 30 years of successfully sending humans to live and work in space, uniquely positions the United States to lead the world in the next chapter of exploration.

To the thousands of men and women who have committed themselves to the safety and success of the space shuttle program for more than three decades, we extend our admiration, gratitude and respect. They also deserve to know that their legacy will be used as a cornerstone for a viable, sustainable endeavor that applies an unprecedented body of knowledge and experience to the exploration and development of space beyond Earth orbit.

The Coalition for Space Exploration is dedicated to ensuring that the United States remains the leader in space, science and technology and to building lasting support for a long-term, sustainable, strategic direction for space exploration. Our nation has never been more ready to launch a new era of exploration. We have never been more experienced and more qualified. The time to lead is now.”

Glenn Mahone, Chairman Coalition for Space Exploration
