3. Ground Rules and Assumptions

Editor's note: several days ago we posted a final (October 2005) draft of this report. We have since come across a complete copy of the final version of the report (November 2005) which has recently been approved by NASA Administrator Michael Griffin. In order to present the most accurate version of this report, we have removed the draft version and replaced it with the final version of the report. NASA is expected to publicly release this report in early January 2006.

At the beginning of the Exploration Systems Architecture Study (ESAS), a number of Ground Rules and Assumptions (GR&As) were established based on management guidance, internal and external constraints, design practices, and existing requirements. The purpose of this section is to summarize those GR&As below.
