Ready for Liftoff

Dr. Mae Jemison, NASA astronaut, visits the Space Coast to discuss the President's vision for NASA

Dr. Mae Jemison is a member of one of the most exclusive clubs on Earth—and beyond. In 1992 she became the first African-American woman to fly a NASA space mission.

Yesterday, Dr. Jemison was back where her career with NASA began. What she saw while touring a small business that creates superconducting magnets is that the Space Coast is poised for a new era of jobs and innovation.

"For generations, the space program has fueled jobs and entire industries; it has improved our lives, advanced our society, strengthened our economy, and inspired generations of Americans.

Thanks to President Obama’s leadership, we have seen the United States of America embark on an ambitious new direction for NASA, laying the groundwork for a sustainable program of exploration and innovation.

I am so happy to be a vocal supporter of President Obama’s vision for space travel and his commitment to the Space Coast.

It's clear to her that the President's commitment to the Space Coast is paying off. Stand with Dr. Jemison and start building the campaign in your area today.
