Description

In January 2004, President George W. Bush created the President's Commission on Implementation of United States Space Exploration Policy--A Journey to Inspire, Innovate, and Discover is the Commission's final report. The Commission sought extensive input for its deliberations, from within the U.S. government and directly from the public in the United States and abroad. They held five televised public hearings, and heard public testimony from 96 individuals representing academia, industry, media, teachers, students, entrepreneurs, astronauts, labor unions, state governments, federal government agencies, international space agencies, and professional associations. Public comments strongly supported the new space vision, by a 7-to-1 ratio. The Commission fully supports the President's vision and finds that this journey of exploration will sustain vital national objectives here on Earth. It will provide inspiration for our youth to enter technical fields, generate economic benefit to our nation through the creation of additional technical jobs, improve the competitiveness of our industrial base in the world marketplace, provide clear recognition of America's leadership, and improve prosperity and the quality of life for all Americans. The Commission concludes that fundamental changes must take place in how the nation approaches space exploration and manages the vision for success. This national effort calls for a transformation of NASA, building a robust international space industry, a discovery-based science agenda, and educational initiatives to support youth and teachers inspired by the vision.
