The Myth Of Presidential Attention To Space Policy
Abbreviated Journal Title
The president, many believe, is the prime force behind the civilian space program. Such beliefs or political mythologies often constitute a potent force that sustain agencies. For NASA, this myth began during the Kennedy Administration when the president committed the nation to placing a man on the moon by the end of the decade. The authors argue that recapturing that magical moment has been the implicit goal of NASA until only recently and discuss why space programs must become not only economically viable, but also linked with general public in meaningful ways.
