Please donate today if you want your kid to be taught by an astronaut teacher, to support the creation of new entrepreneurial space businesses, or to see pro-settlement legislation.

Dear Mars Science Laboratory team,
In the middle of a completely absurd debate about how much U.S. taxpayer money should be put into the pockets of congressional donors in the name of not building government rockets that will not support the opening of space in any way, you are going exploring.
As recently as last week a major figure in the publishing world said to me that we in the Foundation should take credit for leading the change of the largest space program on Earth, and that although most people don’t know it, we are the group that has set the stage and made it happen. If you want to help us do something grand and important, if you want to know that you are not just sharing static and actually do something to give this life meaning, then click on that donation button, write that check. And the next time you hear about the latest rocketship that will carry you and your kids into space, you can smile and know you aren’t just another consumer of constant communication, you’re helping give them something to talk about. Tax-deductible donations can be made by clicking the “Donate Now” tab above.
The Space Frontier Foundation’s effectiveness at fighting for our vision inside the Beltway will depend on the financial support we receive from Foundationers like you. I can’t promise that if you contribute generously we will win every battle. But I can say that with your help, we can fight the most important battles, and advance our cause of a freer and more prosperous life for our children and grandchildren… a hopeful future we will earn by opening the space frontier, together.
The Space Frontier Foundation has succeeded in “changing the conversation about space” and the whole of human civilization will reap the benefits. Our work, however, is only just beginning. Now we need to spread the understanding that it is only by unleashing the power of free enterprise that we can have the benefits on offer in our Solar System. If you care about a free and open space frontier, giving generously to the Space Frontier Foundation is the logical thing to do.
Study Endorses Senate Launch System as Affordable Near-Term Pork The Space Frontier Foundation today agreed with U.S. Senators Kay Bailey Hutchison and Richard Shelby in their claim that Booz Allen Hamilton’s “Independent Cost Assessment (ICA)” of the Space Launch System shows that SLS “can be initiated within our currently constrained fiscal limitations” and therefore “halt…
Today the US Space Shuttle lifted off successfully for the last time. Earlier this week, the U.S. House of Representatives’ Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Science, and Justice threw quite a going away party by releasing its proposed budget for NASA for Fiscal Year 2012 (which begins this October 1st), and the news is not good. Because of strong pressure to reduce federal spending, the Subcommittee had several billion dollars less to divide up among various departments and agencies. So they had to cut NASA and some key programs that we space activists support.
The U.S. House of Representatives’ Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies has asked your Member of Congress for their input on what programs in NASA (and other agencies) should receive increased or decreased funding in FY2012. This gives you an opportunity to have your Representative support vital NASA initiatives like Commercial Crew and Space Technology.
