SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

    Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) The National Aeronautics and Space Administration 
        should continue to pursue actions and reforms directed at 
        reducing institutional costs, including management 
        restructuring, facility consolidation, procurement reform, 
        personnel base downsizing, and convergence with other defense 
        and commercial sector systems, while sustaining safety 
        standards for personnel and hardware.
            (2) The National Aeronautics and Space Administration 
        should sustain its proud history as the leader of the United 
        States in basic aeronautics and space research.
            (3) The United States is on the verge of creating and using 
        new technologies in microsatellites, information processing, 
        and space launches that could radically alter the manner in 
        which the Federal Government approaches its space mission.
            (4) The Federal Government should invest in the types of 
        research and innovative technology in which United States 
        commercial providers do not invest, while avoiding competition 
        with the activities in which United States commercial providers 
        do invest.
            (5) International cooperation in space exploration and 
        science activities serves the interest of the United States.
            (6) In participating in the National Aeronautical Test 
        Alliance, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and 
        the Department of Defense should cooperate more effectively in 
        leveraging the mutual capabilities of these agencies to conduct 
        joint aeronautics and space missions that not only improve 
        United States aeronautics and space capabilities, but also 
        reduce the cost of conducting those missions.
