Nobel Laureates Issue Letter in Support of President's Space Strategy

Oct 5, 2010

On August 31 a letter signed by fourteen Nobel Laureates was sent to U.S. House of Representatives Science and Technology Committee Chairman Bart Gordon (D-TN), expressing support for President Obama's proposed budget for NASA and concern that the House authorization bill (H.R. 5781) would underfund key technology development, commercial launch vehicle and robotic mission programs.  Chairman Gordon responded by expressing concern "that NASA has been given too many missions and too few dollars to fulfill them. The result has either been too much money wasted on … unfocused, unexecutable programs or funding shortages for critical missions."
