Abstract of Testimony for the January 1978 Committee on

Science and Technology

Hearing on Future Space Programs from

Dr. Bruce Friedman, Chairman of the

B'nai B'rith Energy Committee of Maryland

The B'nai B'rith Energy Committee of Maryland feels that an aggres

sive space industrialization effort by the United States of America is of

compelling importance. The Energy Committee strongly urges that the

National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) budget be increased

annually by 20% for every year of the ten year period commencing with

FY 1979 in order to allow NASA to vigorously develop space-based energy

and energy-related options. Further, the Energy Committee unequivocally

supports House Concurrent Resolutions 451 and 447 with their request

for an assessment "of developing as a national goal for the year 2000

the first manned structures in space for the conversion of solar energy

and other extraterrestrial resources to the peaceable and practical use

of human beings everywhere."
