Coalition For Space Exploration Names Seven New Board Members

"Generation Y" Young Adults To Promote Space Exploration

The Coalition for Space Exploration announced Tuesday the addition of seven new individuals -- all members of "Generation Y" -- to its board of advisors: Kelly Billon of Clermont, FL, Lauren Booth of Phoenix, AZ, Joshua Neubert of Las Cruces, NM, Damaris Sarria of Pembroke Pines, FL, Audrey Schaffer of Washington, DC, Alexander Stimpson of Clermont, FL and Erika Wagner of Somerville, MA. Their primary role as advisory board members will be to promote the importance of space exploration to the next generation of explorers and enthusiasts.

These seven individuals join space pioneers like Apollo astronaut Buzz Aldrin, Academy-award winning filmmaker James Cameron, renowned cardiovascular surgeon Dr. Michael DeBakey and other public leaders who share the Coalition's mission to enhance the public's awareness and understanding of the value and benefits of space exploration.

"Each new member brings exciting perspectives and insights to the challenge of communicating the value of our nation's investment in space to younger generations of Americans," said Joe Mayer, chair of the Coalition's Public Affairs Team. "We are pleased to have them collaborating with the team of seasoned professionals and educators currently serving on our advisory board."

"The aptitude, knowledge and passion for space these young people have is truly incredible," added Joan Underwood, deputy chair of the Coalition's Public Affairs team. "We have several projects slated for this group, including outreach efforts on MySpace, YouTube and other youth-oriented outlets."

The Coalition for Space Exploration is a collaboration of space industry businesses and advocacy groups whose mission is to educate and inform the public on the value and benefits of space exploration and to help ensure the United States will remain a leader in space, science and technology - key factors that will benefit every American, strengthen our nation's economy and maintain our national security.
