In difficult economic times, people ask; “Why should we spend Taxpayer dollars on the exploration of Space?” The reasons are many, however one of the most memorable was found in a recent press release from Michael Griffin, the Director of NASA. He eloquently states:
“Throughout history, the great nations have been the ones at the forefront of the frontiers of their time. Britain became great in the 17th century through its exploration and mastery of the seas. America's greatness in the 20th century stemmed largely from its mastery of the air. For the next generations, the frontier will be space.Other countries will explore the cosmos, whether the United States does or not. And those will be Earth's great nations in the years and centuries to come. I believe America should look to its future – and consider what that future will look like if we choose not to be a spacefaring nation.”
The goal of this site is to collect petition signatures to show the Obama Administration that America wants to continue the important scientific mission of the Constellation Program. This site will be accepting signatures until February 28, 2010 at which time we will send our message and petition signatures to the White House.
Dear President Barack Obama,
We, the undersigned, ask you to fulfill your campaign promise of continued support of NASA and the Constellation program. We believe that America can remain at the forefront of Science and Technology through the exploration of Space.
