NASA is doing its part to advance American manufacturing. The Trump administration has pushed American manufacturing as a cornerstone of economic growth. According to a report released last year, the White House said that advanced manufacturing is an engine of America’s economic power and a pillar of its national security, adding that advances in manufacturing have played a major role in America’s global economic dominance in the 20th century. However, the report warned that this century saw dramatic changes, with significant declines in U.S. manufacturing employment starting in the 1990s and accelerating losses during the 2008 recession.
