Dear Space Advocate,
President Trump' motto is 'make America great again.' Nothing creates greatness like a bold space program.
2018 was an exciting year with important space accomplishments, including Space X's first launch of Falcon Heavy, the landing of InSight on Mars, and a bit greater NASA budget which advances key components for manned deep space exploration. However, the holdover plans to build a mini space action in lunar orbit remains a decade-long delay from returning to the moon to build a research base. Instead, the "Lunar Orbital Station-Gateway" (LOP-G) may just end up as spectator seating to watch China build their lunar SURFACE base, and reap like the advantages of seizing the only areas with water ice, as in the South China Sea.
Let's help make 2019 the year that President Trump is given the necessary public support for favorable space policies.
Here's how: Save Manned Space's unique strategy and non-partisan educational campaigns will help educate the president's advisors on the immense benefits of living on the moon, not orbiting it for years, and using those lessons to successfully live on Mars. Similar campaigns educate Members of Congress and their advisors, as well as the general public on the benefits of a bold space program.
Please donate now to help our educational outreach and lobbying projects on the space program.
Allowing opponents of the space program in the media and politics to set the agenda could result in a lack of support in the administration. Strong public support for space can help pave the way for a bold new space program.
The stakes are too high to not go bold with our space program. Failure will allow China to lead the new and very real space race. We can--and must--go to the Moon in the early 2020s, learn how to safely live on another world, and go to Mars in the early--not late 2030s.
Many people, much less politicians, do not understand that the space program returns far more to the economy in new inventions ('spinoffs') than the investment. And that's not counting the job creation, advances in science, inspiration for students to go into STEM careers, and even greater international respect.
Please donate now to help Save Manned Space work with the Trump administration, lobby Congress and conduct public and educational projects for a bold new space program to take us to the Moon and Mars! Donations are not tax deductible, and corporate donations are welcome.
Thank you very much for your support.
