House Republican Politics Update.

We were directed to the website ontheissues.org for a summary of John Shadegg's politics by a member of the Mars Society of Washington D.C. (Here.) One positive space policy vote in Shadegg's record is his support of the commercial space launch legislation in 2004. (See the Technology category on the issues webpage linked above.)

In our view, that is insufficient. The private commercial launch industry is in its bare infancy. Its immediate goals are to break in to the suborbital and then lower orbital market. The industry is far away from being able to support human exploration of Luna or Mars. A government space program is needed for exploration and to push back the frontiers of space.
