CSF President Eric Stallmer Testimony From U.S. Human Exploration Goals and Commercial Space Competitiveness
Commercial Spaceflight Federation President Eric W. Stallmer testified before the Senate Subcommittee on Science, Space, and Competitiveness hearing titled, “U.S. Human Exploration Goals and Commercial Space Competitiveness” yesterday.
“Since the dawn of the space program, cooperation between government and the private sector has been critical to our tremendous accomplishments in space,” stated Stallmer in his opening statement to the Subcommittee. “But the relationship has evolved over time. The relationships that once defined the United States’ nascent space program have given way to more modern and innovative approaches to procure a wide variety of necessary capabilities and services.”
Eric encouraged the Congress to codify a number of productive policies that will promote growth and innovation in the industry, and maintain the United States’ space sector’s competitive leadership.
