Space Station

Ted Cruz Warns against Privatizing the International Space Station

Kevin Mooney, National Review

NASA must work to avoid any disruption in U.S. access to space that strategic competitors could exploit. This is the point Cruz drove home to NASA officials back in May, during a subcommittee hearing that focused on future plans for the space station. We won’t stay on the right track for long unless Cruz succeeds in scuttling the administration’s foolish proposal in exchange for one that ensures uninterrupted U.S. access to low-Earth orbit and beyond.
