Space Advocacy

The National Space Society works to promote the conditions necessary for the development of, and human expansion into, space. This work is called space advocacy. We do this through our Policy Committee, that sets the agenda for our work to influence the U.S. Congress. Our Political Action Network of space enthusiasts and advocates, and our annual events that gather citizen-advocates in Washington, DC, work to promote our priorities.

March Storm Advocacy Event

“March Storm” is our annual space advocacy event held each spring in Washington, DC. The goal is to influence policy decisions and funding for space-related programs. March Storm is organized through the Alliance for Space Development, a coalition of fifteen space development focused organizations led by NSS and Space Frontier Foundation.

During March Storm, citizen-advocates gather in Washington to meet with congressional representatives and advocate for specific priorities that support space exploration, space development, and ultimately human expansion into space.

It’s an opportunity for space enthusiasts and professionals to have direct conversations with lawmakers and their staffs to promote the importance of space development, exploration, and technology.

Details of future advocacy events will be posted here.

Our most recent event focused on these priorities:

Objectives for 2023

  • Extend the “learning period” limiting FAA regulation of commercial human space launch for another eight years.
  • Initiate a clean energy technology demonstration of Space Solar Power beamed to Earth from low Earth orbit, deployed within five years.
  • Protect Earth from hazardous asteroids by increasing funding for the NEO Surveyor space telescope, to help recover from major cuts in FY22 and FY23.
  • Additional Objectives: Highlight the importance for space development of Commercial LEO Development, Commercial Crew Program, Lunar Gateway, Human Landing System, Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS), and Space Technology including in-situ resource utilization.
