Hi, I’m Jackie Wolcott.

Congratulations to NASA and SpaceX for their successful launch of two astronauts from Kennedy Space Center to the International Space Station.

Collaboration with the private sector is essential in this new era of outer space exploration.

Here in Vienna, the United States works with the UN’s Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space to address critical issues of safety and sustainability of space operations.

The United States is proud to lead in space and is committed to working with international and commercial partners as we further explore the Moon, Mars, and beyond.
