Kerry Campaign Issues Space Policy Statement

John Kerry and John Edwards on Space and Aeronautics for the 21st Century

“Americans are justifiably proud of this nation’s past aeronautics and space accomplishments. John Kerry and John Edwards believe that maintaining and increasing America’s leadership in aerospace is more important now than ever.NASA research has led to breakthroughs in a number of fields, far beyond space flight, aeronautics, or the other NASA missions. “

Editor’s note: Lori Garver and John Logsdon couldn’t even get a statement about the Kerry campaign’s position on the future of the space shuttle program in this document. The shuttle must not be a high priority for Kerry. For that matter, the ISS is not mentioned either – and when human spaceflight is mentioned it is located in a sentence where Kerry bashes Bush. This document sounds more like a retreat than a step forward.

“The whole point of this statement is to demonstrate that human exploration is not at risk under a Kerry administration.”
