January 14, 2004: President Bush announced a new
vision for the Nation’s space exploration program


Advance US scientific, security, and
economic interests through a robust
space exploration program


Long
-
term human and robotic
program to explore the solar system


Return to moon and ultimate
exploration of Mars and other
destinations

“Mankind is drawn to the heavens for the same reason we
were once drawn into unknown lands and across the open
sea. We choose to explore space because doing so improves
our lives and lifts our national spirit.”

PRIORITY # 1

Space Exploration
Academy


Increase priority on teacher training;



Provide for better integration of existing math, science, and engineering
education initiatives across governments, industries, and professional
organizations;



Explore options to create a university
-
based “virtual space academy” for
training the next generation technical workforce.

“… the greatest impact will come from expanding programs to
train teachers of science, mathematics, and technology. Future
efforts should include in
-
service active teachers and pre
-
service
teachers, i.e., those who are still in university and college
programs.”
