DISCOVER's Science Policy Project: Buzz Aldrin

By Melissa Lafsky | September 24, 2008 11:27 am

What are the three most important things the next U.S. president needs to do for science? To cut through the jargon and find an answer, we bring you the DISCOVER Science Policy Project, in which we give a group of the country’s most celebrated scientists and thinkers the chance to state their views. All past responses can be found here.

BUZZ ALDRIN
Astronaut

Commit to an expansion of federal funding for all U.S. federal scientific research (at least a 50 percent increase).

Elevate the president’s science adviser to report directly to the president (not the chief of staff) and make the Office of Science Technology Policy a cabinet rank, overseen by the science adviser.

Commit to a long term and stable federally funded program of exploration of space including manned exploration and settlement of the solar system and robotic exploration of the universe.

  14. Hi – very good web site you have created. I enjoyed reading this posting. I did want to write a comment to tell you that the design of this site is very aesthetically pleasing. I used to be a graphic designer, now I am a copy editor in chief for a merchandising firm. I have always enjoyed working with computers and am attempting to learn code in my free time (which there is never enough of lol).

  15. Good day, merely supposed i would reveal to you something.. This is 2 times these days i

  16. Howdy, merely decided i would reveal to you something.. This is twice today i

  17. Wow! Thank you! I always wanted to write in my site something like that. Can I take part of your post to my blog?

  19. I love fix it because it is so easy to use. No matter what color of car you own, it will work like magic. All you have to do is apply the Fix It Pen to your cars scratch, then you will have to buff it in a bit, and then just simply wipe it and poof the scratch is gone.The fix it is a clear coat that fills in scratches by sealing them. It is permanent so you will not have to fix ti up later on. It is also water resistant so you do not have to worry about having to reapply it after you wash your car.It will only take seconds to dry, and then you can see for yourself just how great it works. I have used it on my car, and even on a rental car that I scratched a bit, and you could not even tell. It is amazing, and I am so glad there is actually something out there that works.It is really cheap to, so you can save that deductible and go out to get yourself something that makes you happy, like a new pair of boots, or a massage. I hope you find the fix it as great as I did.
