Dear Colleague:

Student Space Action would like to inform you of a way in which you can
directly voice your support for manned space exploration. As you read
this, your space program is in danger of becoming extinct. Congress is
once again attempting to eliminate space station funding. Cancellation of
the space station could mean the phase-out of space exploration and
eventual termination of aerospace industries and job opportunities. The
resulting impact on the nation's economy, technology and educational
system would be disastrous. 

You can tell your congressmen exactly how much you support the space
station and the manned space initiative by signing the Student Space
Action's Interactive Online Petition. Simply follow these steps: 

	telnet seds.lpl.arizona.edu
	login> space

	Now answer the questions to the best of your ability
	(read the directions accompanying the petition--
	use <tab> to enter answer; <enter> to toggle yes/no;
	up/down arrows to go backwards and forwards through
	questions. Caution: if floating characters appear on
	your screen--ignore--it's probably just an emulation
	problem. Your petition will still be signed.
	After you submit the petition, you will receive information
	on your congressmen and senators so you can contact them further
	by phone or mail if you desire. 

The petition is also accessible by NCSA Mosaic. Simply go to the following
URL and follow the directions: 

	URL:  http://seds.lpl.arizona.edu/ssa/petition.html

	Answer the questions and submit the petition and you 
	will receive the same information as the telnet version.
	You will also have the option of linking to the space 
	station home page where you can read up-to-date information
	on the space station, including issues of "Space Station 
	This Week."

Please forward this message to anyone you may feel would want to be a part
of this effort--everyone! 

If you believe the space program is a vital part of our country's future,
both in economic growth and technological advancement, then sign the
Student Space Action's Interactive Petition. 

If you believe that NASA should remain as an engine for continued manned
space exploration, then tell everyone you know to sign this petition. 

If you believe that our government, by supporting an initiative like the
space station, is making an investment in the future generation of this
great nation, then send your message to Washington by signing the Student
Space Action Interactive Petition. 


Your voice does count! And it WILL make a difference!
