Why: To raise awareness of the deep cuts to NASA’s funding for planetary exploration in the President’s purposed FY13 budget and gain support in the opposition of these cuts.
NASA’s planetary exploration program has been highly successful, making fundamental discoveries, motivating STEM careers, developing new technologies, creating jobs, and putting America in the history books with its accomplishments in space exploration.
Congressional appropriations committees have already partially restored a part of the President’s proposed devastating 21% cut to NASA’s planetary exploration program. We support and applaud those efforts, and sincerely thank them for their role in them. Now, we’re asking their work to go further to fully restore the NASA planetary exploration funding for FY13 to it’s FY13 levels.
