Meeting of Space Organizations

Date: Wednesday, May 5, 2010

Location: 1200 New York, Ave, N.W., Washington, DC, US,

The President's budget request, together with the meeting recently held in Florida, has laid out a path for NASA that will have far reaching effects for the future of the space program. This debate has focused on the identification of long range goals for the human space program, and a transition path for NASA's space transportation system. Equally important is the well-being of NASA's investment in space and earth science, and technology.

It is crucial that there is a balance between NASA's programs in both human space exploration and the space sciences. Ideally, these should be mutually supportive and based on solid investments in intellectual advancement and enabling technology. This meeting will enable private organizations and associations with a stake in the outcome of this discussion to better understand the current NASA program and its implications for science and technology, and to exchange views on the value of establishing an ongoing coalition of space related organizations.
