Review of U.S. Human Spaceflight Plans Committee releases its Final Report

Human Spaceflight Review

Valador provided assistance with the development and production of the Human Spaceflight Review.

In recognition of the magnitude of the NASA’s planned expenditures to the nation’s human spaceflight program, there were coupled questions about the status of the current human spaceflight program, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, as part of the due diligence of a new administration, called for an independent review of the present and planned effort. Two conditions framed this request: all ongoing human spaceflight work by NASA and its contractors was to continue uninterrupted during the review process; and the review team’s findings were to be available 90 days from the Committee’s formal establishment and a formal report be published thereafter, in recognition of the demands of the federal budget preparation cycle.

The Committee established to conduct the review comprised 10 members with diverse professional backgrounds, including scientists, engineers, astronauts, educators, executives of established and new aerospace firms, former presidential appointees, and a retired Air Force General. The Committee was charged with conducting an independent review of the current program of record and providing alternatives to that program (as opposed to making a specific recommendation) that would ensure that “the nation is pursuing the best trajectory for the future of human spaceflight—one that is safe, innovative, affordable and sustainable.”
