“The aerospace industry is pleased to see the concrete commitment the administration has toward space transportation and exploration. The updated policy, which includes many details suggested by AIA and other industry leaders, is the strongest and clearest language to date supporting commercial space transportation. It also shows renewed government support for space transportation by recognizing federal space launch bases and ranges as national assets. The policy directs the government to capitalize on the exciting entrepreneurial spirit of private companies pursuing public space travel. The aerospace industry stands ready to work with NASA and other government agencies to pursue the nation’s new space vision that will return America to the vanguard of exploration.”
