The Trump administration wants to privatize one of the most important achievements of our country, working in concert with other countries around the world: The International Space Station.

The ISS is critical to modern medical research, biology, astronomy, physics, and more. It will play an irreplaceable role in future exploration of the solar system. We the people of the United States built the ISS with our taxpayer money, and we should continue to collectively own the station and the rights to all knowledge produced on it.

As a child, I always wanted to be an astronaut. The majesty of outer space, the mysteries of our solar system — these should belong to all of us. Space exploration in the 50s and 60s brought our country together like nothing else. Remember that famous first image of earth from space? I want us to continue to explore the final frontier as a nation and world, together, in the interests of the public. I want my children to learn and benefit, not just a few mega corporations.
