Upcoming NAS Reports

"The following reports are tentatively scheduled for release during September. However, release dates of National Academies reports depend on successful completion of the review process and publishing schedules."

  • Portals to the Universe: The NASA Astronomy Science Centers [National Research Council] - Reviews the activities, budget, and staff of NASA's existing astronomy science centers to help the agency decide how and when to build future centers. Editor's 29 Aug update: I have been advised by the NAS that this report will not be released in September - as was noted in their head's up to the media - but rather that its release date is not expected to be before December 2006.
  • Review of NASA's Science Mission Directorate Science Plan Letter Report [National Research Council]- Assesses NASA's draft plan for planetary exploration, solar and space physics, astrobiology, earth sciences, and astronomy and astrophysics. The report examines whether the plan is scientifically balanced, serves stakeholders in the scientific community, and follows recommendations from recent Research Council reports.
  • The Scientific Context for the Exploration of the Moon [National Research Council] - Interim report from a project examining the scientific goals that should guide NASA's plans for robotic and human exploration of the moon over the next two decades.
