This is the March 13, 2019 hearing titled "America in Space: Future Visions, Current Issues," held before the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. From the opening statement of Eddie Bernice Johnson: "This year we will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing. It was a monumental event in human history. Our astronauts have continuously occupied the Space Station in low Earth orbit for almost 20 years, and carried out research there while learning to live and work in space. Our scientific spacecraft have visited every planet in the solar system, and they continuously monitor our own planet's health. Our commercial space sector is growing, offering innovative capabilities and potential new services. What will our future in space look like in 10, 20, or 30 years out? Where are we going to be with human exploration in 2050? What would be the discovery of life beyond Earth mean for humanity here on Earth? What will the roles and relationships of government and commercial space actors be? What will our response to the interesting--increasing numbers and capabilities of other nations in space be?" Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Ellen Stofan, Peggy A. Whitson, and Frank Rose.
