Most Americans want the United States to remain leader in space exploration

The Soyuz rocket with Soyuz MS-09 encapsulated is rolled to Pad 1/5 at Baikonur Cosmodrome

Only about 7 percent of Americans surveyed said they payed close attention to space news, hearing "a lot" about NASA and commercial space in the past year. "Sending astronauts into space is one of the most visible of the US space programs over time".

The three astronauts aboard the Russian Soyuz rocket are scheduled to arrive at the orbital space laboratory by the end of the week.

Rather than dismantling the space station, the memo said, the plan was to "expand worldwide and commercial partnerships over the next seven years in order to ensure continued human access to and presence in low Earth orbit". It may, but most Americans still believe NASA's role will be vital in the future. Likewise, monitoring parts of Earth's climate system is a top priority for 63 percent of American adults. Some 29% of this group says they would go so that they can see the view of Earth from space, while 20% want to "learn more about the world".

Also, half of Americans (50%) believe people will routinely travel to space as tourists within the next 50 years.

Local women part of landmark breast cancer research
A high recurrence score, above 25, means chemo is advised to ward off a recurrence, while a low score, below 10, means it is not. Judy Perkins' prognosis was grim: The breast cancer had spread to her chest and liver.

This issue is very relevant due to the emergence of private companies, including Elon Musk's SpaceX, that are venturing out in space.

Interest in orbiting the Earth is greater among younger generations and among men. Only 18 percent of respondents said NASA should send humans to Mars and even fewer think astronauts should return to the moon.

The astronauts will be tasked with conducting various scientific experiments.

Forty-one percent of Americans think developing technologies that could be adapted for other uses to be important, but of lower priority.
