Space Policy Directive-2 Ignored By Space Organizations
The President signed a significant space policy directive dealing w/ commercial space yesterday. @NASA & @JimBridenstine responded. So did Congress and @csf_spaceflight. But not a word from @AIAA, @AIA, @XploreDeepSpace @NSS @exploreplanets @SpaceFoundation @SpaceFrontier #FAIL pic.twitter.com/6Lx1RRGdIB

Keith’s note: Big space policy news from the White House. But not a word about it from the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics,
the Aerospace Industries Association, the Coalition for Deep Space Exploration, the National Space Society, the Space Foundation, the Planetary Society or the Space Frontier Foundation. Only the Commercial Spaceflight Federation and the Aerospace Industries Association have issued a statement. You have to wonder about the depth of commitment to commercial space from these space organizations when they cannot even bother to lift a finger to say thank you when the White House does them a big favor.
