NASA, Administrator Lightfoot. Thank, you for that kind introduction and. Why. Don't we give Robert another round of applause for doing an outstanding job, leading. This. Vital American agency. Thank. You all for being here the members of the cabinet members, of, Congress, honored. Guests, gathered, heroes. It. Is great to be back at. America's, Space Coast at this historic, place, with the men and women. Of the John F Kennedy, Space. Center, the. Pride. Of the nation. It's. My honor to welcome you all here today to the second meeting of the newly reconstituted National. Space Council, before. I get started. Standing. Here in Florida. Allow. Me to take a moment. To. Address what I know is on the hearts of every American. The. Terrible attack that took place in, this state last, week. You. Know in America we mourn. With those who mourn and we grieve with those who grieve. And. Let me assure. All. Floridians. Especially. Those affected, by this terrible, attack. That. As president Trump said our entire nation, with, one heavy. Heart. He's. Praying for you all. As. The president said, no child no teacher, should, ever be. In danger in an American, school. Earlier. This week President Trump called on Congress to strengthen, background checks and. Yesterday. Directed, the Attorney General, in the Department of Justice to expedite, the. Regulation, of bump stocks. Later. Today I'll travel back to Washington, to join the, president, for a listening session where. We'll gather together with students parents and teachers, from. Parkland Florida and. From, communities, that have been impacted by past shootings who put in Columbine and Sandy Hook, and. Later this week when the president meets, with the nation's governors in Washington DC. President. Trump will. Make the safety of our nation's, schools, and. Our top, priority. This, president, in our entire administration, will continue to focus renewed. Energy on making our schools safe on. Taking a fresh look at giving law enforcement and, families, the. Tools they need to deal with those struggling, with dangerous, mental illness. And. As we move forward we will continue to pray for God's grace and comfort, for all the families impacted, by this terrible attack in, the difficult days that lie ahead, and. Let's also pray for God's wisdom, for. All of us in positions of authority that we might find a way to come together as, a nation to, confront.

And End this. Evil in our time once, and for all. So. Thank you for that. Once. Again, it. Is my great honor to welcome all of you to this second meeting of the national space Council, and I. Bring greetings first. And foremost, from, a passionate, champion of. America's, Space Coast and America's, space program a, visionary, who, I can assure you is committed. To American, leadership. In the boundless expanse of, space I bring greetings from the 45th, President. Of the United States of America. President Donald Trump. Just, over a year ago, President. Trump declared that our nation stands, in his words at the birth of the new millennium, ready. To unlock the, mysteries of space and today after, the first year of our administration, the record is clear under, President. Donald Trump. America. Is leading in space, once, again. It's. Really remarkable to think of all that we've accomplished, together in the past 13 months we. Relaunched, this National Space Council an. Organization, of vital importance, to America's, future in space that had laid dormant for nearly a quarter century our. Administration, established a new national, security strategy that's, spurring. The development, of space technology, the technology, that we need to defend our national security and, protect, our way of life in December, President, Trump signed an executive order, space policy, directive one that. Makes it a national policy, of the United States to, return to, the moon put, Americans, on Mars, and bring renewed. Focus, to human, exploration, in, space. Last. Week the president proposed, a budget that prepares NASA to extend, its exploration expeditions. For the outer reaches, of our solar system it. Redirects, government support of the International, Space Station by 2025. And, encourages. America's, pioneering space, companies. In the private sector to, increase their, activity in low-earth orbit, where, the government will be a partner, and a, customer, not, a competitor. And, just last night it was my great privilege to announce that we've selected our nominees, for the national space council's user, advisory. Group, it's, an extraordinary. Group of Americans, that's bringing together some of the brightest, minds in this country to, accelerate, innovation across our nation space Enterprise all. Of the individuals, nominated. For the users advisory, group are pioneers, in their field they're, explorers, they're builders, some. Have built rockets some have built businesses each. Of them have played a critical, role in building America's. Space future many. Of them are with us here today so I'd like to ask those. Among the 29 nominees, of our user advisory, group to to, please stand and join me in thanking and congratulating.

These. Newest, members, of the user advisory. Group for stepping, up to serve our country, at this vital, moment in. The life of our space program. We. Are as President, Trump says a nation, of pioneers, and. I can assure you he firmly believes, that our past triumphs, draw us onward and upward to, begin new journeys of exploration of, our own and reclaim. Our destiny. As the vanguard, of humanity's, great adventure, into. The outer reaches, of space what. We choose to do in space like every frontier, plays a vital role in the lives of our people in the future of this nation here, on earth it. Accelerates. Scientific, discovery, Spurs. Groundbreaking. Innovations, fuels. Our businesses, serves, as the eyes and ears of America's, war fighters and quite literally, creates. The jobs of the future and, it. Isn't just here on America's, Space Coast where you see the importance of our nation's space enterprise, you, see it in Alabama and Mississippi in. California. And Washington State and in, every one of America's, 50 states where, there are hard-working, men and women who get up every day to, help build the world's most advanced rockets, satellites. And spaceships in fact. Thousands. Of companies across the country today are working. On America's, deep-space exploration systems. Alone and as. We continue to push further into our solar system, new, businesses, and entire, enterprises. Will be built to seize the infinite possibilities before. Us and there, will be no limit, to the, jobs and prosperity, that. Will be created, across this country, over. The past year I've had the privilege to travel across this country to meet with men and women who are forging America's, future in space in. Huntsville Alabama I meant the engineers, and technicians working, on the Space Launch System that will send American, astronauts back. To the, Magnificent, desolation, of the moon and on to the red sands of Mars at, Calif, and California's. Mojave spaceport I, climbed aboard a spaceship, that will carry the first generation, of space tourists, to, the edge of the Earth's atmosphere to peer into the cosmic. Expanse, of the heavens and I, walked atop the massive, vessel that will soon launch satellites while, soaring, through the skies I saw. With my own eyes the innovations, that are born when America's, entrepreneurs and. Captains. Of industry turned, their gaze to the infinite frontier. And it's, inspiring, and, Schriever. Air Force Base I saw the strength, of, our surveillance navigation. And communication, system that support, America's. Men and women in uniform as they defend our families, and our freedom around the world and. At the Redstone Arsenal I saw. The steps we're taking to strengthen our national security capabilities. In space and, to, meet, threats that are posed by aggressive. Pursuit of anti-satellite, capabilities. America. Will continue to be as dominant, in the, heavens as we. Are on the earth, at. The Johnson Space Center in Houston I met with the newest class of American astronauts, inspiring.

Americans, All I saw, their courage the pioneering, spirit that's always, defined this country and continues, to spur our people to break barriers set. New records and carry our nation to even greater heights and this. Week I've. Returned to America's Space Coast two of the facilities, of this launching pad for our national, heroes and this, permanent, symbol of our nation's unquestioned, leadership, in space, President. Trump and our entire administration, believed, that, America's, prosperity security. And even. Our national, character, depend. On American. Leadership, in space and over, the past year the. World has seen the vital, role the private enterprise, plays, to advance American, leadership in. Outer space we've. Seen the increasing, number of American, businesses, sending experiments. To the International Space, Station we've, witnessed the power, of commercial, satellites, to reconnect, isolated, communities, in the wake of natural. Disasters, and of course just a couple of weeks ago the. World watched with wonder is the Falcon, Heavy, blasted. Off from this very, shoreline. And then moments, later sent. Two of its boosters, sailing, back down, to earth where they landed, side-by-side. Intact. Less. Than a mile from, where they'd lifted off. Very. Impressive. Indeed. The. Evidence is clear. The. Evidence is clear while. The government can blaze new trails into. Exploring. The outer, expanse. Of space like all frontiers, ultimately, that'll be settled by the dreams of our people by. The brilliance, of our innovators, the energy of entrepreneurs, and the daring of our explorers, together, this. Truth echoes through the history of the Kennedy Space Center named. For a president, challenged, the American people to marshal the best of our in his, words energies, and skills to. Become the world's leading spacefaring, nation. It. Was here in, the early summer morning of 1961. That Alan Shepard, crawled into the mercury capsule, freedom 7 perched. Atop an 82, foot rocket, and ventured into the void it. Was here just over eight years later that the crew of Apollo 11 carried, the hopes and dreams of the American people to the moon and. Claimed our place as the undisputed. Leader, of, the exploration, of space and it's, here today in the 21st century, that, the modern marvels that launched, from these grounds, proved that the public and private sectors, are achieving, far more together than we. Ever have apart, since. January, of last year more than 20 rockets, that were designed built and sent into space by America's, pioneering space, companies, have launched from the Space Coast with. Names like Falcon Delta. Atlas. And Minotaur and as, these feats of American enterprise and ingenuity attest much. More than the bridge to space. Kennedy. Space Center is the. Bridge to the future. Today. As, we speak American, businesses are developing new rockets, I saw, a few last night, spaceships. Satellites, that are taking us further into space than ever before and. Renewing. Our confidence, that we can and will achieve. The. Impossible once. Again not. Long ago no one would have dreamt of landing a vehicle on an asteroid, to, mine its minerals, are opening, a private space station for tourists scientists, and entrepreneurs are.

Operating, A satellite, refueling, station hundreds of miles above the earth but today, these. Are all emerging, businesses, and like. The railroads, that opened up the. American, West to explorers, and entrepreneurs, these technologies. Will extend the range of American action, and values. Into. New worlds and usher. In a new era of job creation, and innovation. Driven. By space, but. While American, industry and Technology have leaped. Toward the future our. Government agencies too often have remained stuck in the past. Consider. The case of satellite, servicing. To begin with a transformative. New technology, that will dramatically, extend the life of our nation's satellites, and unlock untold. New opportunities, in the space industry in the, past whenever. A satellite, ran out of fuel that had to be replaced an. Expensive, and time-consuming process. Like. Buying a new car every time it runs out of gas. We. Now have within our reach the technology, to get around this problem but. As this National Space Council has already come to understand. American. Businesses, that want to launch satellite. Servicing, missions are often stifled, by, a convoluted. Maze of bureaucratic, obstacles and, outdated, regulatory, processes. Today's. Launch licensing. Regime is, plagued by burdensome. Government barriers, to and to, make matters worse launch. License. Can't be transferred, often. From one site to another, as we, learned at the last meeting of the National Space Council, so. If, a company receives its licenses, to launch a rocket from the Kennedy Space Center but, then wants to move their mission to California, or even just a few miles away from Cape Canaveral that. Same company must complete the entire process. All of again from start to finish, you. Know the government's figured out how. To honor driver's, licenses. Across, state. Lines. There's, no reason, we can't do, the same for, rockets. And, more to the point there's no reason our own federal, government should stand in the way of trailblazing companies. That are forging. And reforging. American, leadership in space today. The National Space Council will discuss new policy, recommendations. To break down these bureaucratic, hurdles these. Recommendations I, believe will. Transform, the licensing, regimes that oversee launch, re-entry, and new commercial, space operations, and they'll. Empower American, businesses, to create the jobs of the future attract. New investment to, our shores and unlock new, opportunities, new technologies.

And New sources of, American, prosperity with. These reforms, American private enterprise will usher in a new era of space leadership, that, will propel our economy, strengthen, our national security and. Rekindle. Our belief that America, can and will, continue. To accomplish, anything we put our minds to, as, president. Trump has said quote it is. America's, destiny, to, be the leader amongst, nations on our, adventure, into the great unknown and. We're going to write that next chapter of, that adventure with American, industry, and American. Ingenuity, as, our partner, this. I know will do because it's what the American people have always done, if. You think about it less. Than 35. Years, after Lewis and Clark returned, from their expedition, to the wilderness. Nearly. Half of our new nation's population, had. Already moved west. There. Were pioneers, and settlers traders, and entrepreneurs. And. Above all they were Americans, fellow. Travelers. On our. Nation's never-ending, journey to, explore undiscovered. Lands venture to far-off places, and expand the. Horizons, of our influence, no. Sooner had we attained the Wild West that America's, destiny beckoned, us to the skies above at the turn of the last century two, brothers from Ohio, one. Of whom was born in Indiana. Sped. Down the sands, of Kitty Hawk to, become the first in flight in, just, 66, years later we won the race to the moon like. Many of you some, of the most precious memories of my youth were gathered around a black-and-white television. Watching. Our heroes our. Heroes hurtling into the heavens, and making. History like Buzz. Aldrin who, gathers with us today the second man, on the moon. And. Today. Rising. Generation. Is filled with the same wonder and pride every time they see the new triumphs, and adventures, of America's. Leadership in space. Now. As then every photograph, of a faraway galaxy, that we transmit across our solar system to our classrooms, inspires, us to, dream big. Dreams. Every. Galactic discovery. That helps us unlock a mystery, here on earth stretches, our minds beyond the limits of our. Earthbound existence, and every rocket that we launch into the Stars proves that, in America, the. Sky is not. The limit. Today. We. Stand at the dawn of the, new era of American leadership, in space and we do well, to. Remember the words spoken by the late Gene Cernan the. Last man to walk on the moon before. He boarded the lunar module 45, years ago he. Said and I quote America's. Challenge, of today has, forged man's destiny, of tomorrow. The. Apollo astronauts, were the first Americans, to tell their children and grandchildren that they went. To the heavens and, stood. On another place. It's. Our duty to ensure. By. Our work that. They will not be the last Americans.

To. Set foot in the great unknown. So. As we embark on our journey and we begin our work again. Today we go with confidence and, and. I believe we. Go with faith. You. Know today our nation awoke to the sad news of the passing of one of the greatest Americans. Of, the 20th century the. Reverend Billy Graham. His. Ministry, and his matchless voice changed, the lives of millions and, inspired, our nation. Billy. Graham ever reminded, us to look to. The ancient truths, of God's Word. Asking. With the psalmist. When, I look at your heavens the work of your fingers the moon and the stars. What. Is man that you are mindful of him. And. So. Even. As we remember Reverend, Graham this morning, and. Keep his family in our hearts. We. Continue this renewed work a. Renewed. Commitment to America's, leadership in space. With. Confidence, and, with. A faith but. Has ever carried the American, people. To. The great unknown, and. We, go forward with. The courage to dream bigger. Determined. To work harder and let's. Carry that same confidence of, trailblazers. Who came before us today. And. I have it with. Your support with. The good work of this National Space Council, with. All who work in labor here at the Kennedy Space Center and throughout our space program, it's. A strong leadership of President, Donald Trump the, support of the American people, and. With. God's help I know. America. Will, once again. Astonish. The world with, the Heights we, reach and the wonders we, achieve, so. Thank you god. Bless you, god. Bless this great work and god bless the United States.

man never went to the moon we live under the dome on the flat earth. The moon and sun are not far away from us.

Science based subjects are clearly not Pence's strong point. This administration is the least science and fact driven in modern history.

he's antichrist..










NASA is fake their news is fake hence all of this ?

Pence = Trump Lap Dog. Making America great again one massacre at a time

Trumps Budget cuts funding for NASA and wants to privatize our part of the International Space Station. Stuff it Pence..

Fuck you pence, how does a world that is only 6 to 10 thousand years old hold all the wonders of space.What about the time that light takes to get across our own Galaxy.Oh, in case you didn't hear me-Fuck You!! Elon Musk hates the two of you(pence and Cheetolini )


NASA going to space? There goes Muslim outreach :)

Dear actor, space does not exist.

Vice President Pence, a good man to have standing by our Presidents' side.

Dear whitehouse comment editor I guess anything that isn’t in glowing praise of trump just disappears, another page from Putin’s playbook.

I love Trump and Pence... But leave the good guys guns alone! Trump swore an oath to protect and defend the construction of the United States of America that includes the second amendment... Maybe part of the problem is not with our gun laws but with the corruption in the DOJ

Let US and the globe turn those negative energies into positive ones...........

Dear Vice President Mike Pence,  thank you for your strong leadership assisting President Donald Trump.

Love what is being done in the white house under our PRESIDENT & VICE PRESIDENT Keep fighting to make America great again along with General Matas combat ready.


Peace be unto you שלום ושלום Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we ever be with the Lord The Lord bless thee and keep thee The Lord make his face shine upon thee and be gracious unto thee The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee and give thee peace America The Great The Bold The Beautiful my beloved my sweet Uncle Donald John Trump, The LORD God bless you America The Great The Bold The Beautiful my beloved my sweet Uncle Michael Richard Pence, The LORD God bless you IN GOD WE TRUST GOD BLESS AMERICA THE GREAT FAITH GOD BLESS AMERICA THE GREAT NATION GOD BLESS UNITED STATES OF AMERICA אלוהים יברך את ישראל הכלה של אלוהים GOD BLESS THE NATIONS GOD BLESS WE THE PEOPLE GOD BLESS FLORIDA a sweet and good year with love אהבה אמונה ותקווה yuli:):)

Here we have a man who does not accept evolution, who believes smoking may not cause cancer, who represents a government that has cut funding to many areas of science......speaking at the space council. Trump is a moron.......but quite sane compared to Pence. This Evangelical nutter has no credibility talking about any field of science.

Pence reads great teleprompter.

I can’t wait to elect him in 6 years. What a man!

Praise Kek; he will be our President in 7 more years! #TRUMP/PENCE2020

Will likely become president much sooner than that. Then serve as a lame duck until 2020. Being president while the Trump crime family is being tried will make him forgo any thought of running for president.

Dafuq? I feel sorry for and thank everyone else in the room.

Pence believes in biblical science fiction.

Rollin', rollin', rollin', keep this con a rollin', raw lies!

hurry up NASA make some new rockets to stick up trumps and pence asses to send to mars

ken nesbitt rude pigs are here!

OK. Wow!


Wow. I'm Very Proud For Our President and Vice President....God Bless Them

Let's inspire Americans from all walks of life and people all over the planet! Let's get BACK TO SPACE!!!

A small investment in even a mission to the moon will refuel the *drive* of young Americans to go into tech, and also demonstrate to the world that the USA is *the* place to advance science.


FK you liars. ..all going to prison soon. dumlys the one that took off regulations so mentally ill ppl can buy guns...FK YOU DUMPY THE TREASONOUS PEDOPHILE.

God can only help those who look to HIm.



221.218.. 1040.. 176.. 864327..

Trump card Revolution 2018

Amen.. Thank u Vice President Mike Pence - God Bless u and your Family and the United States of America!!!

Ephesians 6::12 Play the Trump card

Pence is a fake Christian hypocrite who supports the unchristian demon trump. Trump is the anti christ. Support him at peril to your immortal soul

The Memo I'll follow President Trump anytime!

Merle Kallis follow trump at great peril to your immortal soul

The Memo is there anything between your ears?

Smfsableye well hard to believe or not it’s true. Maga

The Memo It's very hard to believe Trump is the Antichrist when most of the idolaters, blasphemers, sloths, harlots, atheists, and degenerates are on the political left.

Billy Graham goes to Heaven to be with Jesus!

The Worlds Greatest Want: The Greatest Want of the World is the Want of Godly Men. Men who will not be bought or sold, Men who in their inter most souls, are True & Honest, Men who do not Fear to call Sin by its Right Name, Men whose conscience is a True to Duty as the Needle to the Pole, Men sho will Stand for the Right though the Heavens Fall.


Trump/Pence 2020. Promises Made / Promises Kept. Simple as that! Took a NON Politician.

Rickey Williams true story!

Space is

Geert Matthys For you maybe. Surely many people would be fascinated to watch humans walking around on Mars

WOW Amazing VP, we love u and respect u Sir VP Mike Pence!!!!

Thank you NASA for not naming a new rocket "Discovery". The First Lady of Space is irreplaceable.


keep the Trump train a rollin :)) God bless


No trains to space weirdo.

Mr Pence,can we have 100-foot high U.S flags with heavy bases dropped on Phobos and Deimos?

8:07, yay tourism.

8:02 lest we forget Saturn has a moon called Titan worth looking at.

l am also live on Dangerous time. My

3:51, the Moon is American because they were there first right?

Joshua Porter what is meant by their, troll?


Troll elsewhere. No anti-USA "shit" from me, Rickey (with an e) Williams.

wheelmanstan yes, through the proper immigration process.

nations are free to put someone on the moon

wheelmanstan I think climbing a mountain any one can climb is different from the Moon.

it's like mount everest, full of flags from all over the world, it belongs to the gods, I guess the u.s. is more like the sherpa that get humanity to the top of the moon, the funny thing is though if the u.s. claimed the moon then russia might have tried harder to put a man on it, we'd have to defend the moon though and maybe kim jong threatens to blow it up and all of a sudden he's got us by the balls haha

Charles Campbell it is good to underline God owns All. I am talking about people leadership and resource development.

The moon belongs to the tides You really want a stagnate ocean?

Rickey Williams simply to be obvious, who is that response for?

Take your anti-USA shit elsewhere.

Joshua Porter that creates an interesting debate. I think it is American because it was impaled with the American flag. The proof that they have the ability to land there first indicates there stewardship worthiness of the Moon.

The moon belongs to no single country. I suppose we could have called it, but we did the right thing and chose not to call it ours.

long lives with good health. God Continue blessings and cares on all of us. God bless USA. Go ahead

Thanks! For the post,

how much is nasa going to cost they cut nasa last time due to funding and dpace launchs wherent getting the tv ratings and more spending by goverment as well as tax cuts how spending more more while goverment is reciving less taxes

Christopher Steele kill yourself

Thanks we get the hint. All individuals must obtain bump stocks. And unnatural governments and mutants are not natural or of God where as individuals who love God and read his Bible all the time. These are the more natural ones. Great POINT We get the hint Sir You have to appease to leftist homosexuals instead of speaking of the constitution. The words that you speak about the Lord God are true. He is One and only One we are afraid of Him thanks Mr Pence we fear the Lord and Not mutant governments. Great points indeed. Lord who formed Mr Pence from the Dust please help him do this deal for individual freedom as well as Human rights as defined by our Constitution Lord help him free the individuals and to delete any obsticals to individual liberty and freedom. Lord help him fire many government workers of iniquity. And Lord protect him with your angels. Thank you God you are one and only one. Your the best. Amen
