The Department of Energy (DOE) has introduced a set of recommendations that supports the U.S. government's National Space Policy

DOE Secretary Dan Brouillette said in a statement published Wednesday the department intends to apply its scientific and engineering capacities to adress space exploration gaps such as extreme conditions and complex operations as stated in the Energy for Space strategy.

The strategy builds on six decades worth of DOE's contributions to U.S. Space programs and indicates the role of the department's innovation enterprise in responding to large-scale research development challenges in space policies.

DOE has also outlined various objectives in the strategy such as addressing space mysteries and driving a safe and productive space market.

"In coordination with NASA, the interagency, and private sector partners, we must continue to harness the incredible capabilities throughout the DOE enterprise to expand exploration and utilization of the space domain," said Brouillette.
