NASA: Boldly Going Wherever?

Book Description

Since NASA first sent men to the moon in the summer of 1969 there have been debates on what to do next. Stuck with a tight budget, a limited horizon and a skeptical public, NASA is hemmed in by problems that have been decades in the making. The National Research Council said recently that the space agency had experienced “considerable programmatic turbulence” in the past decade or so, “with frequent and dramatic changes in program goals and mission plans in response to changes in national policies.” Resolving those problems will take a great deal of imagination and a lot more cash. Join CQ Roll Call, a trusted choice of political analysis and reporting since 1945, in a look at what the agency faces and Congress’ part in its future.
