Explore Mars, Inc. commends President Trump for signing Space Policy Directive 1
Explore Mars, Inc. commends President Trump for signing Space Policy Directive 1. The Administration has once again shown strong support for American leadership in space exploration.
“We call on the Administration, mission planners, and key players to devise a plan to achieve the stated objective of returning to the Moon, and also landing humans on the surface of Mars in the early to mid-2030s as required by the NASA Transition Authorization Act of 2017,” stated Explore Mars CEO, Chris Carberry.
Explore Mars has long supported NASA’s deep space efforts, as well as commercial and international partnerships, that will enable humanity to not only return to the Moon but also begin the human exploration of Mars. We hope that the signing of Space Policy Directive 1 will help to accelerate the return to deep space exploration.
