We live in a fantastic time to learn what lies within Europa’s deep untouched oceans, watch humankind set foot on Mars, and this summer we’ll witness for the first time in human history what Pluto actually looks like in high resolution and learn more intimate details about our famous little dwarf planet.
However, to keep the engine of tomorrow churning, producing innovative technologies and push us on the frontier of knowledge we need to double NASA’s budget. History shows that NASA will get us to where we want to go faster if NASA is well equipped and funded.

"Sen. Ted Cruz thinks NASA should spend less time studying the planet and more time finding ways to go out into space.
Cruz (R-TX), who is chair of the Senate Space, Science, and Competitiveness Subcommittee, addressed his concerns at a hearing Thursday on the $18.5 billion budget request for NASA’s fiscal year 2016. There, he asked NASA Administrator Charles Bolden what Bolden thought NASA’s “core mission” was.
“Our core mission from the very beginning has been to investigate, explore space and the Earth environment, and to help us make this place a better place,” Bolden said.
Cruz wasn’t satisfied.
“Almost any American would agree that the core function of NASA is to explore space,” he said. “That’s what inspires little boys and little girls across this country … and you know that I am concerned that NASA in the current environment has lost its full focus on that core mission.”"
