An Assessment of Balance in NASA’s Science Programs
In February, NASA released a new strategic plan to achieve President Bush's Vision for Space Exploration, outlining the first trade-off decisions the agency has made among scientific programs and other needs to achieve the vision. This report, the final resulting from a congressional mandate in P.L. 108-447, considers whether NASA's plan adequately includes all relevant disciplines and reflects scientific priorities recommended in previous decadal surveys by the Research Council.
These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on May 4, 2006 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
