The American Astronautical Society is saddened by the news of the passing of one of our own, Jeff Bingham.

Jeff served as a pillar of the space community through his many years on the Hill as a former Senior Advisor on Space and Aeronautics for the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. During his lifetime he not only helped shaped U.S. Space Policy, but also AAS through his leadership on our board as a Vice President of Public Policy.

Our condolences are extended to his family and friends through these times. Ad Astra.
