submitted the following

REPORT

HISTORY OF THE COMMITTEE ON SCIENCE, SPACE, AND

TECHNOLOGY The Committee on Science, Space, and Technology has its roots in the intense reaction to the Soviet launch of Sputnik on October 4, 1957. Early in 1958 Speaker Sam Rayburn convened the House of Representatives, and the first order of the day was a resolution offered by Majority Leader John McCormack of Massachusetts. It read, "Resolved that there is hereby created a Select Committee on Astronautics and Space Exploration ...

The Select Committee performed its tasks with both speed and skill by writing the Space Act creating the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and chartering the permanent House Committee on Science and Astronautics, now known as the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, with a jurisdiction comprising both science and space.

The Science and Astronautics Committee became the first standing committee to be established in the House of Representatives since 1946. It was also the first time since 1892 that the House and Senate had acted to create standing committees in an entirely new area.

The committee officially came into being on January 3, 1959, and on its 20th Anniversary the Honorable Charles Mosher said, the committee "was born of an extraordinary House-Senate joint leadership initiative, a determination to maintain American preeminence in science and technology, ..
