NASA Wants Companies To Take Over the International Space Station

Serena Aunon-Chancellor

Among the 42% of Americans who would be interested in traveling into space, 45% of them say the main reason for their interest would be to "experience something unique".

The research is focused on a national survey from the Pew Research Center of over 2,500 American adults. He told reporters he said he had very fruitful talks with NASA US colleagues today, and yesterday had a long conversation with colleagues from the European Space Agency (ESA), adding that "there are joint projects and that "We agreed to act together".

The spacecraft's crew includes Russian cosmonaut Sergei Prokopyev, U.S. astronaut Serena Aunon-Chancellor and German astronaut Alexander Gerst. Only 18 percent of respondents said NASA should send humans to Mars and even fewer think astronauts should return to the moon.

In terms of advancement, approximately 50 percent of Americans believe space tourism will be possible within 50 years, although 58 percent say that they wouldn't actually want to leave Earth. Only 33 percent of American adults think private companies have the ability to ensure progress and explore the space, without National Aeronautics and Space Administration's help.

The show is hosted by the members of Little Big Town: Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook. Little Big Town hosts the CMT Awards. "It's been a insane ride". "Thanks for all of our fans that voted".

Political leanings do play a part when it comes to assessing NASA's priorities, especially in climate issues, which is a top priority for more Democrats (78 percent) than Republicans (44 percent).

Although the media seems infatuated with private companies like Musk's SpaceX, Americans remain traditionally confident in NASA.

Rather than dismantling the space station, the memo said, the plan was to "expand global and commercial partnerships over the next seven years in order to ensure continued human access to and presence in low Earth orbit".

This is not the first time that NASA has looked toward commercial collaboration.
