“Sputnik showed us that we were not the world’s technological leader,” stated Bart Gordon, chairman of the House Science and Technology Committee. “Today, with the rapid economic and technological advances of other countries, I fear we are now on the cusp of another Sputnik moment.  I fear that our country has ‘coasted’ on the investments we made 50 years ago.  Now is the time to act and I believe this committee has an important role to play in helping bring our country back as the technological leader in the world.”
