The National Aeronautics and Space Administration team is responsible for the civilian space program, as well as aeronautics and aerospace research. Combined, this research and space exploration program is vital for the maintenance of life on earth and the advancement of humans in the universe.
As a child, the first thing I wanted to be when I grew up was an astronaut. Although my desire for what I wanted to be often changed my admiration and support for the team and space exploration have remained the same. A former administration provided a 12% increase in funding for NASA bumping it up to $25 billion. As a future member of the United States Senate, I intend to support the program as well, however NASA must be a purpose driven agency guided by clear goals and expectations. It must also be held accountable for these goals and expectations. We have come a long way since the first landing on the moon. I look forward to supporting NASA in their future endeavors.
As a future member of the U.S. Senate, here’s how I plan to support NASA:
By supporting any legislation that provides for the complete funding for the space program for the purpose of supporting human life on earth and terraforming other celestial bodies, along with continuing to make technological advancements for mankind
Supporting a greater partnership between NASA and our military forces to guard against meteors and other extraterrestrial events which may take place and pose a serious threat to life on Earth
By working with my colleagues to improve efficiency by holding NASA accountable for its annual budget, reassessing and meeting goals and expectations
Working with NASA and the space exploration team on hiring practices and hiring a more diverse group of Americans to perform more missions, collect resources, and operate the International Space Station
Most of NASA’s operations include so much more than just the exploration of space; I will support funding for serious exploration of Earth’s center. We must not allow our curiosity for what’s above to distract us from what’s below. We must know more about the status of our core and how it's being impacted by us
