Keep America In Space
http://www.keepamericainspace.com /

"Today, we have to choose. Either we can invest in building on our hard-earned world technological leadership or we can abandon this commitment, ceding it to other nations who are working diligently to push the frontiers of space."

"If we choose to lead, we must build on our investment in the International Space Station, accelerate development of our next generation launch systems to enable expansion of human exploration, enhance NASA's capability to study Earth's environment, lead space science to new achievements, continue cutting-edge aeronautics research, support the innovation of American entrepreneurs, and inspire a rising generation of boys and girls to seek careers in science, technology, engineering and math," NASA Administrator Charles. F. Bolden Jr.

1. On this anniversary of the moon landing...
it's worth remembering that the only powerful multi-Congressional-term mandate NASA has ever had lasted from 1961 - 1969, and it was "beat the Russians to the Moon."

Congress, the American public, and by extension NASA, have been drifting ever since.
