    Posted by Suzanne Kai

      LEROY CHIAO FORMER NASA ASTRONAUT Former NASA astronaut and ISS commander Leroy Chiao, and Elliot Pulham, CEO of the Space Foundation issued a report "LOST IN SPACE" on the state of the U.S. space program on May 19, 2016. Read the entire report at The Mark News website.    Chiao and Pulham's report says, "The U.S. space program is handicapped by a lack of funding – and, even more crucially, a lack of clear direction. So much so that the U.S. now risks watching from the sidelines as other world powers – notably Russia and China – take the lead in establishing a base on the moon as a stepping stone for a human mission to Mars.    As the race for president of the United States moves closer to Election Day, the candidates’ near silence on space-related issues be...

  • A Misty August Night in Nikko, Japan by Photographer Linh Phung
