New NASA Chief Vows US Will Always Have Astronauts in Orbit

Majority of Americans believe it is essential that the US remain a global leader in space

Bridenstine, who became NASA administrator in April, said in a Washington Post interview that he has "talked to many large corporations that are interested in getting involved in [managing the ISS] through a consortium". Epps remains in consideration for future missions, NASA said.

Pew Research Center published the results of their newest survey today.

Whether they're Republicans or Democrats, Americans can still agree on one thing: Space is cool.

Although the media seems infatuated with private companies like Musk's SpaceX, Americans remain traditionally confident in NASA.

Monitoring key parts of Earth's climate system: 63% said it should be a top NASA priority; 25% said it should be an important but lower priority; and 11% said it is not too important or should not be done. Only 33 percent of American adults think private companies have the ability to ensure progress and explore the space, without National Aeronautics and Space Administration's help.

Liverpool tipped to land worldwide winger in £10million deal
Simon only has one year left on his deal at Gent, which, therefore, means the Reds could sign him for as little as £10million. Simon has played predominantly as a left-winger for Gent this season, but has been known to operate on the right as well.

The Soyuz MS-09 ship has successfully entered a designated orbit and is set to dock at the space outpost Friday.

Space exploration has changed drastically in the decades following the first landing on the moon by United States astronauts.

Bridenstine also said his top two priorities were the resumption of human spaceflight from the USA -since 2011, American astronauts have relied on Russian transportation to get to the ISS-and going back to the Moon with the help of a new, nearby outpost that could ferry supplies there.

Around half of Americans share the opinion that people will travel routinely to space as tourists over the next 50 years. Only about 13 percent say they have a great deal of confidence commercial companies will control the problem. Gerst is the only astronaut of the mission that had participated in a space mission in 2014.
