We are living in an extraordinary time for space travel.
Tomorrow night I will attend the State of the Union as a guest of Congressman Jim Bridenstine – nominee for NASA Administrator – who extended me an invitation in my role as CEO of The Planetary Society. The Society is the world’s largest and most influential non-governmental nonpartisan space organization, co-founded by Carl Sagan. While the Congressman and I disagree on a great many issues – we share a deep respect for NASA and its achievements, and a strong interest in the ...future of space exploration. My attendance tomorrow should not be interpreted as an endorsement of this administration, or of Congressman Bridenstine’s nomination, or seen as an acceptance of the recent attacks on science and the scientific community. The U.S. Space Program has long been a source of American technical achievement, a symbol of our innovative spirit, and a source of national pride. There are extraordinary opportunities for our country, and for all humanity, in the continued exploration of space. Historically, the Space Program has brought Americans together, and during his address, I hope to hear the President’s plans to continue exploring the space frontier.

The countdown is on. It’s your LAST CHANCE to join me at Cape Canaveral to see LightSail 2 launch on SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy. It will be such a great day, one could even call it out-of-this-world. Support The Planetary Society and ENTER: http://bit.ly/Last-Chance-Launch-You-Me
