President Trump signed a law Tuesday authorizing funds for a crewed NASA mission to Mars.

NASA Authorization Act bill signing, Tues. "This bill will make sure that NASA's most important and effective programs are sustained".

NASA "shall continue the development of the fully integrated Space Launch System, including an upper stage needed to go beyond low-Earth orbit, in order to safely enable human space exploration of the Moon, Mars, and beyond over the course of the next century", said the text.

Rep. Mo Brooks and President Donald Trump, Tues.

While getting to Mars likely won't happen during the Trump administration, NASA says they should be able to get there in the 2030s.

Reaffirms Congressional support for the Space Launch System and the Orion program, and directs any long-term strategy to include opportunities for collaboration with industry and academia. Much of the engine testing for the SLS program is done at Mississippi's Stennis Space Center. "I am also pleased to note the inclusion of the TREAT Astronauts Act, legislation that I introduced to ensure that our nation's astronauts receive support for medical issues associated with their service while also advancing research in long-term space missions". Roby serves on the Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee that is responsible for NASA funding. "I was proud today to join the President as he reauthorized funding for NASA, with a special focus on the vital missions of the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville".

The new law is the first NASA authorization to pass both houses of Congress since the NASA Authorization Act of 2010.
