HUNTSVILLE, ALABAMA – All Points Senior Vice President John Hall attended the National Space Council meeting held at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama on Tuesday after receiving a special invitation from The White House National Space Council and its Chair, Vice President Mike Pence.
The meeting focused on the United States’ efforts to get humans back to the moon and then send people on to Mars and other distant destinations.
“In addition to targeting a human landing on the Moon in 2024, the council also discussed creating a new Moon to Mars Mission Directorate,” said Hall.
“The Vice President and the Council recommended to President Donald Trump that NASA adopt a new plan to send astronauts to the moon’s south pole within the next five years – that’s four years ahead of the current schedule.”
The National Space Council is a body within the Executive Office of the President of the United States that was created in 1989 during the administration of George H.W. Bush, disbanded in 1993, and re-established in June 2017 by President Donald Trump.
The Council is an inter-agency board that includes the secretaries of state, defense, commerce, transportation and homeland security, the head of the government’s intelligence community, the NASA administrator, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and other Trump administration officials – many of whom were in attendance for the meeting.
Among the dignitaries in attendance were esteemed panel members from civil, academia and industry. Other special guests included Alabama Governor Kay Ivey, Alabama Speaker of the House of Representatives Mac McCutcheon and Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle.
