At the IEEE/AIAA confrence in Big Sky, Montana, Dr. Edward Crawley, MIT Professor and former member of the Review of U.S. Human Space Flight Plans Committee, a.k.a. the Augustine Committee, presented to the audience the Augustine Committee’s activities, research and thought processes as it reached its findings. Dr. Crawley did a good job of impressing upon the audience the thoroughness of the Committee’s efforts. Dr. Crawley also noted that the President didn’t exactly follow the Augustine Committee’s recommendations when the White House proposed its Fiscal Year 2011 NASA Budget.
After working through the Augustine Final Report twice, it is the opinion of AmericaSpace that we couldn’t agree more with Dr. Crawley.Missions » ISS »
