The incoming Administration put out a call for ideas that it should take prompt action on–the Day One Project. Ideas were welcomed in a variety of areas:
- Education and Workforce
- Energy, Environment and Climate
- Health and Life Sciences
- Innovation and economic competitiveness
- IT & Technology Policy
- National Security
- Science policy
Four colleagues and I were asked to submit a paper to the Day One Project in the area of advanced space capabilities. The paper is now posted on the project’s website:
Reading it, you’ll notice that it impacts several of the Project’s interest areas. We show a new way to achieve climate data; we advocate for new technologies that will create jobs; the plan will grow the space economy; and the elements of our architecture will greatly enhance the security of our space assets.
Perhaps if you think this plan is a good idea, you might write your Congressman!
