"This is the March 20, 2013 hearing on 'Space Threats' held before the Senate Subcommittee on Science and Space. From the opening statement of Ted Cruz: 'Space flight and our capacity to maintain world-leading advantage in space flight is a critical priority for the nation and certainly a critical priority both for the State of Texas and the State of Florida. And so I am eager for our collective journey to ensure that NASA and all of the related programs have sufficient resources, sufficient priority to do what needs to be done. And I appreciate all of the witnesses coming here today to address these important topics and also to begin the process of what I hope this subcommittee will do over the coming years, which is continuing to make the case to the American people about the importance of these programs, about the benefits that they produce for the private sector, that they produce for men and women across this country, and, at the same time, looking for ways to improve those benefits, to expand the cooperation that we presently have between NASA and the private sector, and to look for ways to even further increase positive benefits that are realized in everyone's day-to-day life.' Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: James Green, Edward T. Lu, Richard DalBello, and Joan Johnson-Freese."
