NASA LAUNCHES HUMAN SPACE FLIGHT REVIEW WEB SITE FOR PUBLIC USE
WASHINGTON -- NASA is inviting the public to make its voice heard as
panel of experts undertakes an independent review of planned U.S.
human space flight activities.
NASA has created a Web site for the Review of U.S. Human Space Flight
Plans Committee to facilitate a two-way conversation with the public
about the future direction of the agency's space flight programs. In
addition to providing documents and information, the site will allow
the public to track committee activities, receive regular updates and
provide input through Web 2.0 tools such as Twitter, Flickr,
user-submitted questions, polls and RSS feeds. Additional features
and content may be added as the committee's activities continue.
"The human space flight program belongs to everyone," committee
chairman Norman Augustine said. "Our committee would hope to benefit
from the views of all who would care to contact us."
Anyone may use the Web site to submit questions, upload documents or
comment about topics relevant to the committee's operations. The
committee will conduct public meetings during the course of the
review. The first will be held June 17 in Washington, D.C. An agenda
for this meeting will be announced soon. Time will be set aside for
public questions and comments to the committee members. No
registration is required to attend.
