tions. The ISS is a collaboration among
five space agencies and 27 nations overall.
Today, Canada, the European Space
Agency, and Japan are all making substantial
contributions to Artemis. And 18
countries to date have signed the Artemis
Accords, a set of principles to guide civilian
use of the Moon for science, exploration,
and commercial activities. As we explore
our solar system, we should be
guided by the spirit of such cooperation.
We have no shortage of accomplishments
in space to celebrate. But unless
we meet these challenges head on, we
can't fulfill the promise of space exploration.
If the United States wants to lead
this endeavor in the future, it needs to
invest now.

But deep space exploration isn't just another
" Moon race " against China. And we
must not rest on our laurels if we make a
return to the Moon before the Chinese
get there. Rather, exploration - in cooperation
with our allied space partners -
should be viewed as an opportunity to address
the challenges within our borders.
One of them is a lack of future workers
educated in science, technology, engineering,
and math (STEM). A recent
study found that U.S. manufacturing
firms will need to add about 3.5 million
STEM workers, with both college degrees
and advanced manufacturing skills, to
their ranks by 2025. But as many as 60
percent of these positions risk going unfilled
because of a shortage of qualified
workers. More funding will help NASA
expand its existing K-12 and college education
programs - the pipelines for
these future professionals.
Importantly, increased funding for Artemis
and space science will help inspire
the next generation of leaders in STEM,
just as it did during the 1960s.
It's no accident that, in the decades after
the Moon landings, there was a revolution
in electronics, medicine, biotechnology,
and automation. As young Americans
watched the United States make history,
many were inspired to pursue STEM careers
in these industries. Future missions,
like Artemis, could have the same impact.
Finally, it's essential that the United
States continues to lead in space by leading
in international cooperation. The
