House Hearings Fail to Tap NASA’s Full Potential

Yesterday the ¬†U.S. House of Representatives ¬†Subcommittee on Space held a hearing entitled “Exploring Our Solar System: The ASTEROIDS Act as a Key Step Planetary science“. I was curious about this act and expected the hearing to focus on interesting new ways to motivate private companies to design, launch, and operate space missions, and further the study of our Solar System.
