Writing 4 Letters To Save America’s Human Space Flight

Thanks to the folks at Save NASA’s Constellation and Manned Space Flight Program for this:

Although it can feel good to openly vent about the proposed 2011 NASA budget, if you are seriously interested in having a say, now is your opportunity to steer the course of history. Should several thousand letters (not email, which is ignored) reach Senators Bill Nelson, Barbara Mikulski, Richard Shelby, and Kay Hutchison, they can and will have an major impact upon the future direction of NASA. Unlike old age and taxes, the death of Constellation is not at all a certainty. Because of language put into last year’s budget by Senator Shelby, America’s human space flight porgram Constellation will continue to be NASA’s plan of record until Congress specifically says otherwise.

For the cost of 4 first class stamps, which is not too expensive compared to the 9 billion dollars invested in Constellation, and the loss of many thousands of talented engineers, your voice will be heard. Your letter does not need to be long, and should be to the point.

Send your written letters to the following address.

Mikulski, Barbara A. – (D – MD)
503 HART SENATE OFFICE BUILDING
WASHINGTON DC 20510
(202) 224-4654

Nelson, Bill – (D – FL)
716 HART SENATE OFFICE BUILDING
WASHINGTON DC 20510
(202) 224-5274

Shelby, Richard C. – (R – AL)
304 RUSSELL SENATE OFFICE… BUILDING
WASHINGTON DC 20510
(202) 224-5744

Hutchison, Kay Bailey – (R – TX)
284 RUSSELL SENATE OFFICE BUILDING
WASHINGTON DC 20510
(202) 224-5922

By not writing, you could easily be casting a vote against Constellation.
