Economic, Communications, and Support Companies Join The
The Next Step in Space Coalition, a group of businesses,
organizations, and people working to ensure the future of US human
spaceflight, announced Tuesday that its membership has grown to
include a diverse set of businesses and organizations, including
Google, Inc., Analytic Graphics Inc., the Space Coast Economic
Development Commission and the National Space Society.
With its new members, the Next Step in Space Coalition now
includes large aerospace companies like Sierra Nevada Inc.,
Analytic Graphics and SpaceX, as well as smaller companies such as
Odyssey Moon and Space Adventures. Also pledging their support are
space related organizations including Space Florida and the
Commercial Spaceflight Federation.
To date, more than 20 businesses and organizations have joined
the Next Step in Space Coalition, which was established to educate
government officials and the general public on the current role of
commercial companies in space transportation and the potential role
of commercial companies in the future of human spaceflight.
The Coalition is a group of businesses, organizations, and
people working toward making commercial human spaceflight a
reality. Investment in commercial space will allow for full
utilization of the International Space Station, enable NASA to
focus its efforts beyond low-Earth orbit, and ensure that taxpayer
dollars are reinvested in the US and not spent overseas.
