Vice President Mike Pence at KSC, July 2017 (NASA) Vice President Mike Pence said July 6 that NASA would focus more on human space exploration, including missions to the moon and Mars, but gave few details. Pence, speaking at the Kennedy Space Center, said the Trump administration would "usher in a new era of space leadership" that included, ultimately, "American boots on the face of Mars." Pence gave few new policy details in the speech, but did state that the first meeting of the new National Space Council, reestablished by an executive order signed by President Trump last week, will take place by the end of the summer.
