Trump resurrects space strategy advisory body

President Donald Trump has brought the National Space Council back into operation after two decades.

At a White House ceremony attended by former NASA astronaut Buzz Aldrin, on 30 June, Trump signed an executive order that re-established the space council. Reviving the council was one of Trump’s campaign promises, and the pledge was repeated by vice-president Mike Pence after taking office.
