WASHINGTON — One of the more intriguing pitches being made during the Citizens for Space Exploration's trip to D.C. comes from a college student.
Erik Lopez, a Los Angeles native who goes to the University of Illinois, would like to nominate the International Space Station for a Nobel Peace Prize.
Lopez touted his idea on Capitol Hill Tuesday and had a lot of positive responses.
He said that since the space station relies on so much international cooperation — United States, Russia, Japan, Canada and Europe — it has done a lot to promote better world understanding for one common goal.
I'll have more on Lopez' idea later. It is an intriguing idea.
