What does a Trump presidency mean for NASA? Less climate change, more space exploration.
“While there can be disagreements over particular missions, that kind of general opposition to NASA Earth science projects is motivated, largely, by a lack of interest in knowing the facts that are developed from it.” – David Goldston. On the opposite side of the coin, more focus on space exploration and getting people into space is a lofty and worthwhile goal.
