Obama wants peace, cooperation in space


President Barack Obama has issued a new National Space Policy for the United States. Obama wants ''¦ space as a stable and productive environment for the peaceful use of all nations.'


On June 28, 2010, President Obama issued "The National Space Policy of the United States of America."

The press release of the Policy, from the Office of the Press Secretary, begins 'Today, President Obama announced the administration's new National Space Policy. The National Space Policy expresses the President's direction for the Nation's space activities. The policy articulates the President's commitment to reinvigorating U.S. leadership in space for the purposes of maintaining space as a stable and productive environment for the peaceful use of all nations.'

The Policy calls for expended international cooperation from peaceful countries of the world. It also states that U.S. astronauts will visit an asteroid by the year 2025.

According to the Space.com article White House Unveils New National Space Policy, President Obama states, "We are releasing a new national space policy, designed to strengthen America's leadership in space while fostering untold rewards here on Earth.'

And, 'For even as we continue our relentless focus on the serious challenges we face at home and abroad, our long-term success and leadership as a nation demands that we do not lose sight of the promise of the future."

Page two lists the critical elements involved in the new U.S. National Space Policy.

The major elements of the Policy are:

'¢   The United States remains committed to many long-standing tenets in space activities.

'¢    The United States calls on all nations to share its commitment to act responsibly in space to help prevent mishaps, misperceptions, and mistrust.

'¢    The United States will engage in expanded international cooperation in space activities.

'¢    The United States is committed to a robust and competitive industrial base.

'¢    The United States recognizes the need for stability in the space environment.

'¢    The United States will advance a bold new approach to space exploration.

'¢    The United States remains committed to the use of space systems in support of its national and homeland security.

'¢    The United States will fully utilize space systems, and the information and applications derived from those systems, to study, monitor, and support responses to global climate change and natural disasters.

Please read the June 28, 2010 press release for the U.S. National Space Policy in more detail at the White House website 'Fact Sheet: The National Space Policy.'

Page three concludes with where to find the official National Space Policy of the U.S.A.



You can read the 14-page document at 'National Space Policy of the United States of America.'

In part, the introduction of the Policy states, 'As the leading space-faring nation, the United States is committed to addressing these challenges. But this cannot be the responsibility of the United States alone. All nations have the right to use and explore space, but with this right also comes responsibility. The United States, therefore, calls on all nations to work together to adopt approaches for responsible activity in space to preserve this right for the benefit of future generations.'

'From the outset of humanity's ascent into space, this Nation declared its commitment to enhance the welfare of humankind by cooperating with others to maintain the freedom of space.'

'The United States hereby renews its pledge of cooperation in the belief that with strengthened international collaboration and reinvigorated U.S. leadership, all nations and peoples'”space-faring and space-benefiting'”will find their horizons broadened, their knowledge enhanced, and their lives greatly improved.'
