Third Interim Report – NASA Return to Flight Task Group – January 28, 2005

“NASA has not interpreted the CAIB recommendations to be a checklist, but rather has in many cases undertaken activities that far exceeded the intent of CAIB. In other instances, technological and other barriers have thus far prevented the kind of progress CAIB had hoped for, and NASA has striven for. Taken together, the RTF TG believes it is entirely possible NASA will be able to make sufficient progress on the CAIB recommendations before their current launch date. Several activities will nonetheless be incomplete, and several issues raised by the CAIB, such as scheduling and resources, are timeless.”
