AIAA Information Paper: Restore and Sustain Our National Space Life Sciences Research Capability

“The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) is deeply concerned about the potential destruction of the U.S. space life sciences research community. The human exploration element within the administration’s Vision for Space Exploration is dependent on this community to extend a human presence, as proposed, beyond Earth orbit.”
