Statement of the Participants of the 2015 Pioneering Space National Summit


February 20, 2015 - This week a diverse group of over 100 space leaders from academia, government and industry came together at the Pioneering Space National Summit in Washington D.C. and moved beyond the endless debates about destinations and launch vehicles and achieved consensus.Together they were able to forge the following statement:

The long term goal of the human spaceflight and exploration program of the United States is to expand permanent human presence beyond low-Earth orbit in a way that will enable human settlement and a thriving space economy.
 
This will be best achieved through public - private partnerships and international collaboration.

The participants agreed that this statement is consistent with and builds upon the 2010 NASA Authorization Act (Public Law 111-267), and the journey it helps the nation begin will serve many national interests and benefit the American people.
