Former Rep. Bob Walker, President-elect Donald Trump’s senior adviser on space policy, hopes to end NASA’s research into climate change and instead focus on “deep space” investigation, according to an interview published Wednesday in The Guardian.

Walker, a Pennsylvania Republican, told the news organization that he envisions the space agency in more of “an exploration role” under Trump’s administration and would see the end of what he referred to as “politicized science.” NASA is one of the world’s leaders in climate change research, measuring global temperatures, levels of sea ice, the amount of carbon dioxide in that atmosphere and other important climate-related indicators.
