Trump Gives NASA The Go-Ahead To Get Humans To Mars

The law, known as the NASA Transition Authorization Act, gives the space agency United States dollars 19.5 billion in funding for fiscal year 2018.

U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-Ala.) attended the bill signing ceremony in the Oval Office.

"With this legislation, we support NASA's scientists, engineers, astronauts and their pursuit of discovery", he said.

"It orders NASA to...continue transitioning activities to the commercial sector where we have seen great progress". The legislation also makes human exploration of Mars an agency goal.

Trump's campaign plugged the idea of re-establishing the council before the election, and multiple Republican presidents have used this kind of advisory board to their advantage in the past. The bill maintains vital support for the Space Launch System and Orion crew vehicle, the International Space Station, and the commercial crew and cargo programs.

While NASA is refocusing its efforts on exploring the unknown parts of space, countries like China and India are seeking to make their mark, hoping to end the dominance of Russian Federation and the U.S.as the world's foremost space-going nations. "Also this bill calls for ongoing medical monitoring and treatment of our heroic astronauts for health conditions that result from their service", Trump said.

Both emphasized the need for fair trade, but Trump couldn't help but complain that Germany is now profiting at America's expense. Trump said Friday that trade should be "reciprocal". "But hopefully we can even it out". "We need to be fair to each other".

"For nearly six decades NASA's work has inspired millions and millions of Americans to imagine distant worlds and a better future right here on Earth". Roby serves on the Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee that is responsible for NASA funding.

"Alabamians are proud of the key role NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville plays in the space program", Roby added. The bill also makes the determination that the technological and scientific goals of the Asteroid Redirect Mission have not been demonstrated, and requires a report on alternatives to demonstrate the technologies needed for a human mission to Mars.

The new law is the first NASA authorization to pass both houses of Congress since the NASA Authorization Act of 2010.
