The National Space Society is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the creation of a spacefaring civilization. Its mission is to promote social, economic, technological, and political change in order to expand civilization beyond Earth, to settle space, and to use the resulting resources to build a hopeful and prosperous future for humanity. In his role as President of NSS, Notkin will be the national spokesperson for the organization, working to further its goals and objectives. The National Space Society is widely acknowledged as the preeminent citizen's voice on space, with more than 50 chapters in the United States and around the world. I welcome the exciting challenge of representing NSS at this decisive moment in the history of science and exploration.
