NASA VISION REPLACES HQB

With One NASA as our new mantra, the HQ Bulletin (HQB) has been redesigned and renamed, effectively creating a new publication, the NASA Vision. Like the HQB, NASA Vision will continue to highlight awards and events at Headquarters, but will also include expanded coverage of news throughout the Agency. Copies of this new publication will be delivered to HQ offices this week. To access NASA Vision online, see http://www.hq.nasa.gov/hq/infocom/hqbull/vision_4-03.pdf InfoCom, mailto:infocom@hq.nasa.gov 358-4817.
