PENCE LOOKS TO SPACE AS CORONAVIRUS SPREADS IN U.S.: VP Pence leads the eighth official meeting of the National Space Council at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. He’s expected to deliver remarks on NASA’s Artemis moon program—the agency’s efforts to place astronauts on the lunar surface and begin to develop an ongoing presence on the moon—as well as highlight the Trump administration’s accomplishments with the Space Force. President-elect Joe Biden has yes to outline his space policies, and the future of the Space Force remains unknown. The National Space Council was created in 1989 under Pres. George H. W. Bush, was disbanded just four years later, and reestablished in 2017 by Trump. Pence’s visit to discuss space expeditions comes as the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread in the United States, infecting more than 15 million Americans and killing almost 300,000.
