Yesterday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order hoping to shuttle the United States’ into another leadership position.

The order revived the National Space Council and will help the United States stay competitive against China and Russia space programs.

Per Daily Mail:

Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin appeared at the White House on Friday as President Donald Trump reinstated the National Space Council, which was last active in 1993.

After Trump signed the executive order placing Vice President Mike Pence at the helm of the council, Aldrin declared: ‘Infinity and beyond’.

Trump says the announcement sends a clear signal to the world about the United States’ leadership in space, adding that space exploration would help the economy and national security.

Trump is excited to bring back the program after over 20 years it was dissolved:

Talk of reviving the Space Council – which was dissolved in 1993 – has been in the works for several months.

Pence confirmed he’d lead the council in March, and a draft of the executive order was written in May, according to Space News.

At Friday’s ceremony, Pence said: ‘With the action he takes today, President Trump will bring a renewed sense of purpose to America’s space policy that will benefit literally every facet of our national life.’

The council, made up of numerous cabinet members as well as the head of NASA, will coordinate spending and review the country’s space policy.

The new revival may help increase private sector contributions:

It will also foster ‘close coordination, cooperation, and technology and information exchange’ between government agencies and the private sector.

The council’s revival comes at a time when Elon Musk’s SpaceX and Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin, for example, are trying to reduce the costs of space travel.

It remains unclear how the Space Council’s policies will shape the two competing goals between traditional aerospace companies like Boeing and Lockheed Martin and newer startups.
