About the Coalition


The Coalition for Deep Space Exploration is an alliance of space industry businesses and advocacy groups collaborating to reinforce the value and benefits of deep-space exploration with the public and our nation’s leaders. Our goal is to build lasting support for a long-term, sustainable, strategic direction for human space exploration and science, ensuring that the United States remains a leader in space, science and technology.

The Coalition is currently in transition to a new President and CEO. During this time, Andrew Allen, a member of our Board of Directors, is Acting CEO, while Dr. Mary Lynne Dittmar transitions from her previous executive leadership position to “Board Member, Emerita”, advising the organization and other Board members.
