This final report, from the National Research Council's Committee on the Physics of the Universe, outlines a strategy for addressing 11 key scientific opportunities identified in the first phase of their study looking at physics, astronomy, and the universe. The report includes ways to facilitate continued, coordinated planning for this cross-disciplinary area of research among NASA, the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, and the scientific community.
These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on April 21, 2002 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
