Status Report From: NASA Exploration Systems Mission Directorate
Posted: Monday, May 24, 2010

image WASHINGTON -- Presentation charts for the opening-day briefings of NASA's Exploration Enterprise Workshop in Galveston, Texas, will be posted online at noon EDT, Monday, May 24.

The two-day workshop brings together a broad community of space exploration stakeholders from government, industry and academia. The Exploration Systems Mission Directorate's plans for human and robotic space exploration and the administration's fiscal year 2011 budget request for the agency will be discussed.

The charts represent a starting point that will be refined throughout the summer and coming years. They capture the results of planning as of May 25, but do not represent final plans. Any specific launch dates and missions are likely to change to reflect the addition of the Orion Emergency Rescue Vehicle, updated priorities, and new information from NASA's partners.

The charts provide a basis for engagement with outside organizations, including international entities, industry, academia and other government agencies. Involving outside groups helps NASA make informed decisions as program objectives and expectations are established. To view workshop presentations, visit: or
