WASHINGTON, D.C.U.S. Congressman Max Miller (OH-07) today highlighted the importance of Ohio’s NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC) to NASA and Northeast Ohio’s economy in a House Science, Space, and Technology Committee hearing with NASA Administrator Bill Nelson. Nelson joined the Committee to talk about NASA’s budget request for fiscal year 2025 (FY25), which includes funding for critical projects at GRC.

During the hearing, Congressman Miller stressed the importance of GRC’s work in advancing NASA’s strategic mission. In particular, Miller talked about the importance of the Fission Surface Power project, which will keep the lights on during deep space travel and long-term stays on the moon. Miller also stressed the Communications Services project, which GRC leads and will leverage commercial capabilities to provide modern data relay for NASA satellites. This program also strives to mend the data gap for NASA’s aging communications satellites. Finally, Congressman Miller stressed the importance of continued funding for both of these projects.
