“America’s ability to send astronauts beyond low Earth orbit hinges on completion of the Space Launch System (SLS), a portion of which is being developed at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center,” Brooks said.  “In this morning’s House Science, Space, and Technology Space Subcommittee hearing, I questioned Mr. William Gerstenmaier, NASA’s Associate Administrator for Human Exploration and Operations Directorate, on developing processes and procedures to avoid delays to the SLS program and areas of concern in the upcoming test of SLS’s core stage element.”

Tuesday, July 11, 2017, Republican US Senate candidate Dr. Randy Brinson said that US Representative Mo Brooks’ (R-Huntsville) latest campaign commercial is a ploy to make voters believe his candidacy is supported by President Trump.

Dr. Brinson said in a statement, “This is just another example of Mo Brooks saying what he thinks will get him elected. In February, 2016, he went on MSNBC the day before the Super Tuesday primaries and said ‘a lot of people who have supported Donald Trump, they are going to regret having done so, because you’re going to find that on a significant number of those issues (including border security), Donald Trump is not going to do what people think he’s going to do.’ Mo Brooks then went on to call the President a ‘serial adulterer’ and said ‘I don’t support people who support adultery.’”
