Austin S.

Letter to President

Advancing space exploration is a problem that not many people are talking about.

Dear Future President,

There are many issues that you should be concerned with, such as terrorism and racial inequality. However, I want to topic I feel is lesser known, space exploration.. I know that SpaceX and NASA want to be able to launch astronauts in the U.S. in 2017, and well it is a start, it’s not enough. Now, I know that there is not much you can do individually, as SpaceX is a private company. But, if you publicly endorsed them working together, maybe they will be more inclined to do so. You could also try to secure more funding for NASA because space exploration is expensive. So. I want to know, how are you going to help improve the space program?

Space exploration matters to me because I remember how amazing the few launches of even space probes i saw. I am sure that I am not the only one that felt inspired when I saw them, and I feel that inspiration is something people need right now. With all of the terrifying events and stories that we hear from the news, I would love to hear an inspirational story for once, and what better story than launching a manned spaceship?
