BREVARD COUNTY • KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLORIDA – Vice President Mike Pence will visit the Space Coast on Wednesday to chair the White House National Space Council at Kennedy Space Center.
Pence will also visit the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station to meet with the 45th Space Wing personnel.
The National Space Council is a body within the Executive Office of the President of the United States created in 1989 during the George H.W. Bush administration, disbanded in 1993, and reestablished in June 2017 by the Donald Trump administration.
It is a modified version of the earlier National Aeronautics and Space Council.
The National Space Council operates as an office of policy development and handles a portfolio of civil, commercial, national security, and international space policy matters. Composed of cabinet-level members and supported by a Users Advisory Group, the council is chaired by the Vice President of the United States.
Pence is expected to discuss NASA’s Artemis program and space achievements during the Trump administration.
