The president-elect along with two of his advisors have come up with an Opinion Editorial entitled “Trump’s Space Policy Reaches for Mars and the Stars”, in which Trump assures the people that hope is still alive for human mars habitation in the ocming years, Space News reported.
Additionally, it seems that Mars is more important to Trump than the Earth as other reports suggesting that the budget allocated by NASA for earth-centric climate change studies is likely to be redirected towards further space exploration. NASA uses Armada satellites to conduct their studies on earth science and they recently launched the Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System (CYGNSS) on November 10th of 2015 at NASA headquarters.

The next administration is likely to face industry pressure and strong bipartisan support on Capitol Hill to stay the course on current NASA programs, something that didn’t happen during previous White House shifts. But with many current policies championed by some of Hillary Clinton’s advisers, transition aides foresee policy revisions and budget challenges requiring new priorities and spending patterns.
Mike Pence, Mr. Trump’s running mate, already has promised to revive a White House space policy council, disbanded since the 1990s, to rationalize government-wide space spending, identify new goals and squeeze savings out of longstanding initiatives. For NASA and its leading contractors, shaken by sharp changes in the wake of the 2008 Presidential election, Tuesday’s results could translate into serious belt tightening. Yet Mr. Trump has stressed the importance of supporting deep-space exploration, and his campaign attracted a cadre of veteran experts with long histories supporting robust space efforts.
