Robert Zubrin Submits Testimony to the United States Senate Mars Society

In the past week, Dr. Robert Zubrin, with the help of Joe Webster and Chris Carberry, authored testimony that was submitted to the United States Senate VA-HUD Appropriations Subcommittee, regarding the National Aeronautics and Space Administration budget for FY 2002 (the VA-HUD Appropriations Subcommittee has jurisdiction over NASA’s budget). In the testimony, Dr. Zubrin explains to Congress why our Nation should commit at least one percent of NASA’s budget (about $140 million) to a program that would investigate technologies that will be necessary to send humans to Mars. In addition to the VA-HUD Subcommittee, we will be sending copies of this testimony to numerous other members of Congress as well as the Bush Administration.
