In that report, entitled “Seeking a Human Spaceflight Program Worthy of a Great Nation”, the Commission found that NASA simply can not accomplish the goals with which it has been tasked and the resources which it has been allocated. On February 1, 2010, President Obama released his 2011 budget that invests an additional $6 billion in NASA over the next five years – an overall $100 billion commitment to the agency. The Presidential Budget also calls for the cancellation of the Constellation program, extension of the International Space Station, and increased usage of commercial launch providers among major shifts at NASA. More than ever before, it is absolutely critical that the voices of the space advocacy community be heard in the debate over the future of our nation’s space program. SEA will be calling upon Congress to ensure NASA is a compelling national priority. The Space Exploration Alliance is gearing up for its next “Legislative Blitz” in Washington, DC. This event will be held from Sunday, February 21, 2010 through Tuesday, February 23, 2010.
