This Saturday at the SpaceVision 2011 conference in Boulder, Colorado, 21 chapters voted to elect the following students to the SEDS-USA board during the 2011-12 year to represent their best interests:
The House of Representatives’ Committee on Science, Space, and Technology hosted one of the most exciting hearings in recent times on September 22nd, featuring great thoughts from Neil Armstrong, Gene Cernan, Dr. Maria Zuber, and Dr. Michael Griffin.
It was very exciting to see so many great minds on one panel answering the questions of congress. It was also good to hear so many of those in attendance express the need for goals for future space exploration to help inspire students around the country and around the world. While some of those present disagree on just how it should be accomplished, all of the representatives and guests shared the belief that NASA’s mission to explore space should be strongly supported in future congressional budgeting.
Yesterday, Rick Hanton, the chairman of SEDS-USA sent the letter written to congress last March to Neil Armstrong, first man to set foot on the moon. Neil has been called to testify before congress about the future of NASA and American Space Exploration.
