(Cape Canaveral, FL) — Tea Party in Space (TPiS), a non-partisan organization wishes to congratulate The Golden Spike Company (GSC) on their announcement detailing their plans to return humanity to the Moon. Today’s announcement is a victory for not only the people of the United States, but people around the globe. GSC has an all-star lineup of proven space professionals who not only understand the engineering and science, but also realize the fiscal reality we live in.

“We are starting to see the private sector step up to the plate and start putting forth ideas filled with American Exceptionalism and innovation,” said Andrew Gasser, President of TPiS. “We now have multiple companies in various stages of design, development, testing, and evaluation with the sole mission to open up the next chapter of space exploration. Just as important, the Golden Spike Company is writing the prologue to permanent settlement of the Moon.”

TPiS believes that GSC will help revitalize the aerospace sector in America. By leveraging infrastructure, manpower, and technology that is already built, developed, and in place; GSC will help open up the Moon to commerce and science. Ultimately, GSC’s growth means more American aerospace engineers and technicians will go back to work.

“The Space Coast desperately needs more commerce taking place. We have the world’s best scientists, engineers, and technicians trained to work in the industry,” added Everett Dirksen Wilkinson, Vice President of TPiS. “The coast and the state are abuzz, and why shouldn’t we be? We need to make a lot more noise and rattle a lot more windows than we are right now. We welcome the Golden Spike Company and hope they take advantage of what Florida has to offer.”

The flexibility of GSC will be a major asset as the United States reclaims its leadership role in space exploration and settlement. It is through this flexibility that millions of children will be able to see in their lifetimes. This will only reinvigorate our nation’s goal to reinvigorate our children’s imagination with space and turn them to study science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

“‘Golden Spike’ conjures up images of hard work, grit, and determination; it validates everything that TPiS has been driving home to anyone that would listen these last two long years,” concluded Gary Anderson, National Coordinator and Director of Operations for TPiS. “Free market principles, private investment, entrepaneurial risk, it is all wrapped in one special gift to America.”

TPiS will do its part getting the American public behind this great human effort.
