Most Americans want the U.S. to remain leader in space exploration

Prokopyev, a rookie space flier, was blanked in the Soyuz left-hand seat by European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst, veteran of a previous space station expedition in 2014, and NASA astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor, also making her first trip into orbit.

A Russian Soyuz rocket carrying three astronauts blasted off from Baikonur spaceport in Kazakhstan on Wednesday for a two-day journey to the International Space Station.

Recently the new NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine stated that the International Space Station, the space agency's floating laboratory in space, might receive more private and less government investment in the future.

Researchers are reporting that the vast majority of Americans believe the United States should take the lead in space exploration. The three arriving astronauts will remain aboard until December.

The ISS crew spent a staggering 168 days in orbit, circling the Earth 2,688 times and covering a distance of 71.2 million miles. Even as private companies are emerging in the industry, NASA remains an absolutely necessary source of space discovery, according to study participants. Once aboard the ISS, Expedition 56 (and 57) will "work on hundreds of experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science".

"Strong public support that the US should continue to be at the vanguard of space exploration is widely shared across gender, educational and political groups". By comparison, fewer Americans say crewed space missions should be top priorities, with 18% saying that sending astronauts to Mars should be a top priority and only 13% saying the same about the moon.
