He said that that the returns on space programs delivers incredible results, helping to bring change in how people live on earth. Moreover, a significant research and science that is provided by stations now, particularly related to the health segment that will highly impact the way things turnout on earth.

“There’s a job for us to do of educating the public on, first of all, the small amount that is spent, and secondly, the incredible benefits that come from that, that affect us here on Earth,” said Elbon
