History has shown that space exploration accelerates a nation’s progress. While much current debate focuses on the cost of space exploration, there may be greater risks if the nation does not pursue a serious space exploration program incorporating both robotic and human missions. Today, we have the best opportunity in decades to start a new golden age of space exploration, but will the United States be at the forefront of this great challenge?

Northrop Grumman Chairman, CEO and President Dr. Ronald D. Sugar offers his insights to these and other critical space exploration questions in an address at the National Press Club. These timely remarks examine how space exploration and the challenge it represents can lead to solutions to many of the current and future challenges here on earth.

A buffet lunch will be available beginning at noon. The speech starts promptly at 12:30 p.m.
