Posted: Tuesday, March 9, 2004
WASHINGTON, D.C. - On Wednesday, March 10 at 10:00 a.m., the Science Committee will hold a hearing with non-governmental witnesses regarding the President's recently announced space exploration initiative. The Committee will focus on the following overarching questions: Are the cost estimates and timetables of the initiative realistic? Is using the moon and the International Space Station as stepping-stones to a Mars mission the best approach? How difficult will it be to develop ways to minimize the impact on human health of long stays in space? Would NASA's budget have the proper balance among NASA's programs under the initiative?
