Topics: Planetary Society Political Advocacy

The Planetary Society continues our strong political advocacy for space science and exploration. The following is an excerpt from a letter we sent on Thursday, January 12, 2012 to Jacob Lew of the Office of Management and Budget and the President's Chief of Staff.

The complete letter can be downloaded here.

"We strongly urge the Administration to rebalance NASA's portfolio and re-baseline the funding for programs in the Science Mission Directorate -- Astrophysics, Earth Science, Heliophysics, and Planetary Science. A small increase to 30% of NASA's overall budget would support the outstanding missions being completed and planned."
