Blitzing Congress

If it's three months after March Storm, it must be Blitz time.

As we know,
2006 Space Blitz, the NSS and Space Exploration Alliance's citizen lobbying effort, hit Washington this week to "demonstrate citizen support for space exploration" and ask lawmakers "to fund NASA at the full authorized level of $17.9 billion," to allow the space agency "to aggressively develop the next generation of space exploration vehicles, while pursuing other important objectives like: Connecting upcoming lunar exploration work with future human exploration of Mars; stimulating private sector efforts with programs like Commercial Orbital Transportation Services (COTS) and the Centennial Challenge program; and sustaining vital science missions, including the Terrestrial Planet Finder (TPF), a dedicated probe of the Planet Jupiter’s moon Europa, and the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOPHIA)."

Space Exploration Alliance is a "partnership of the nation’s premier non-profit space organizations" including the American Astronautical Society, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Aerospace Industries Association, Aerospace States Association, the California Space Authority, Federation of Galaxy Explorers, Florida Space Authority, Moon Society, Mars Society, NASA Alumni League, National Coalition of Spaceport States, National Society of Black Engineers, National Space Society, The Planetary Society, Space Access Society, the Space Generation Foundation, and the X PRIZE Foundation.)

Happy space blitz!
