President Donald Trump signed a law on Tuesday that could send a manned mission to Mars by 2020.
After Obama basically shut down NASA 7 years ago, President Trump signed a bill which reauthorizing funding for NASA!
Conservative Tribune reported that Trump just signed a Senate bill Tuesday authorizing $19.5 billion worth of funding for NASA for the 2018 fiscal year. This figure is half a billion more than former Obama had budgeted for NASA for the 2017 fiscal year.
This shows that Trump cares far more about the pursuit of knowledge than Obama ever did.

“The key U.S. objectives for human expansion into space shall include achieving human exploration of Mars and beyond through the prioritization of those technologies and capabilities best suited for such a mission in accordance with the stepping-stone approach to exploration specified in federal law,” the bill read.
Speaking Tuesday during the bill signing, Trump praised NASA for its role in inspiring “millions and millions of Americans to imagine distant worlds,” and reaffirmed his “commitment to the core mission of NASA: human space exploration, space science, and technology,”
During Obama’s presidency, he forced NASA to waste millions of dollars in taxpayer funds on investigating his climate change claims. With his budget last year, he literally diverted funds from NASA to climate change studies.

FINALLY!! Time to get back to space and aeronautics instead of climate change. For those of you that didn’t listen to the president speak on this, this bill actually puts into text the private sector collaboration with NASA.
This is excellent! My question is how soon can we start shipping Liberals off this planet??
