Space Flight Summary Report to White House on Tuesday
4 September 2009 10:52 am
The blue-ribbon panel reviewing NASA's human space flight program says it will give the White House a written summary of its findings on Tuesday, 8 September.
The panel, chaired by Norman Augustine, a retired aerospace executive, began meeting in June and held several public sessions. Last month, it briefed Obama Administration officials on various alternative directions for NASA's human efforts in a post-space shuttle world. Its final report was expected to be completed by the end of August, but the group is still writing up its detailed results.
