Space exploration has challenged, inspired and improved us for more than half a century. Today, theCoalition for Space Exploration (Coalition), in partnership with the recently-formed NASA Visitor Centers Consortium announced an expansion of the Coalition’s “Why Space Matters to the Future” video contest that encourages residents of the United States to visualize what life will be like in 10, 25 or 50 years if the boundaries of space continue to expand.
Entrants submit a short video that captures their vision of why the exploration of space matters and how it will benefit future generations. Three winners will receive a VIP trip to one of three NASA’s Visitor Centers: Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida, Space Center Houston in Texas, or the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Alabama. Winning videos will also be shared with the general public and national leaders throughout the nation. For more information, contest rules and video uploading instructions, go to VisitNASA.com.
