Sec. 2486. Congressional statement of findings

-STATUTE-

The Congress finds that -

(1) the vitality of the Nation and the quality of life of the

citizens of the Nation depend increasingly on the understanding,

assessment, development, and utilization of space resources;

(2) research and development of space science, space

technology, and space commercialization will contribute to the

quality of life, national security, and the enhancement of

commerce;

(3) the understanding and development of the space frontiers

require a broad commitment and an intense involvement on the part

of the Federal Government in partnership with State and local

governments, private industry, universities, organizations, and

individuals concerned with the exploration and utilization of

space;

(4) the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, through

the national space grant college and fellowship program, offers

the most suitable means for such commitment and involvement

through the promotion of activities that will result in greater

understanding, assessment, development, and utilization; and

(5) Federal support of the establishment, development, and

operation of programs and projects by space grant colleges, space

grant regional consortia, institutions of higher education,

institutes, laboratories, and other appropriate public and

private entities is the most cost-effective way to promote such

activities.

-STATUTE-

The purposes of this chapter are to -

(1) increase the understanding, assessment, development, and

utilization of space resources by promoting a strong educational

and multidisciplinary programs of space research within the

university community of the Nation, to engage in integrated

activities of training, research and public service, to have

cooperative programs with industry, and to be coordinated with

the overall program of the National Aeronautics and Space

Administration;

(4) encourage and support the existence of consortia, made up

of university and industry members, to advance the exploration
