This is the July 13, 2016 hearing "NASA at a Crossroads: Reasserting American Leadership in Space Exploration" held before the Senate Subcommittee on Space, Science, and Competitiveness of the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. From the opening statement of Ted Cruz: "My priority for this subcommittee is to ensure that the United States remains the leader in space exploration in the 21st century. We began last year by committing our Nation to fostering the continued development of a strong commercial space sector through the passage and enactment of the U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act. Now we look to build on that foundation by focusing NASA's energies on continuing to make progress in exploring space and redoubling its partnerships with the private sector. Human space exploration and innovation are integral to the mission of NASA. That's why this subcommittee will work to provide NASA with the security and stability that is necessary as the agency transitions from one administration to the next." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: William H. Gerstenmaier, Mary Lynne Dittmar, Michael Gold, Mark N. Sirangelo, and Daniel L. Dumbacher.
