Grading NASA's Solar System Exploration Program: A Midterm Review

Assessment of Solar System Exploration

 

Project Scope

The Space Studies Board shall convene a committee to review the alignment of NASA's Planetary Exploration Division program with previous NRC advice - primarily the reports "New Frontiers in the Solar System: An Integrated Exploration Strategy" and several recent studies concerning Mars, such as Assessment of Mars Science and Mission Priorities. More specifically, the committee shall address the following:

1) The degree to which NASA's current solar system exploration program addresses the strategies, goals, and priorities outlined in Academy reports;

2) NASA progress toward realizing these strategies, goals and priorities; and

3) Identify any actions that could be taken to optimize the science value of the program in the context of current and forecasted resources available to it.
