Development Conference sponsored by the National
The vast uncharted regions of space hold great promise
for mankind. This frontier challenges our desire to
explore and unravel secrets of the unknown.
As you know, I have established a National Space
Council, under the chairmanship of Vice President
Quayle. The Space Council will report to me on a wide
range of issues that will shape America's space agenda
in the decades to come. I encourage you to work with
the Space Council to assist in establishing our agenda
for opening space to exploration, private enterprise,
and eventual settlement.
As we prepare America's space agenda for the 21st

create a spacefaring civilization. That objective, as
I stated earlier this year, is not just our ambition,
but our destiny.
Barbara joins me in sending best wishes for a most
enjoyable and productive conference. God bless you.
