Making a Business Case For NASA

Space exploration vital to our economy, Opinion by former NASA Stratcomm Chief Bob Hopkins, Orlando Sentinel

"Whatever the outcome, the space economy is expanding all around us, and if we do not make the commitment to a comprehensive national space strategy and fully funding it, we will most assuredly see our nation's economic and technological standing fall behind our competitors. If we find it in the national economic interest to provide for a $700 billion bailout to Wall Street, we can surely make the relatively modest investment -- less than 3 percent of the bailout funding -- needed in space exploration, technology, research and science to ensure continued U.S global economic and technological leadership in the future. Commitment to space is vital to our economy."
