Date of Editorial Board meeting: 
Publication date: 
Thursday, January 27, 2011
Abstract in English: 
As the Congress considers the existing space policy challenges, the major issues it faces can be summarized as three broad questions: What is NASA for? What should NASA do? How? This report analyzes these questions and some possible answers. It also addresses a number of cross-cutting issues, such as NASA’s interactions with other federal agencies and the growing role of the commercial space industry.
