Dana Rohrabacher - Political Positions - Space

Space

Rohrabacher was chairman of the Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics from 1997 to January 2005 and has been active on space-related issues. In 2000, Space.com described Rohrabacher as "a strident advocate for supremacy in space, a philosophy shaped along a winding road from libertarian activist to White House speech writer in the Reagan administration." In 2007, Rohrabacher introduced a bill that would direct NASA to develop a strategy “for deflecting and mitigating potentially hazardous near-Earth objects.” Rohrabacher has applauded the Apollo astronauts claiming them as unofficial ambassadors. Rohrabacher stated “I applaud their efforts and accomplishments over the past fifty years. And I encourage all Americans to join with me in thanking them for their accomplishments and for the international role they have played in serving as unofficial Ambassadors to the world on our behalf.”

Famous quotes containing the word space:

    The within, all that inner space one never sees, the brain and the heart and other caverns where thought and feeling dance their sabbath.
    Samuel Beckett (1906–1989)

    Even the most subjected person has moments of rage and resentment so intense that they respond, they act against. There is an inner uprising that leads to rebellion, however short- lived. It may be only momentary but it takes place. That space within oneself where resistance is possible remains.
    bell hooks (b. c. 1955)

    It is not through space that I must seek my dignity, but through the management of my thought. I shall have no more if I possess worlds.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
