On January 14, 2004, President Bush announced a new vision for human and robotic space exploration that he named 'A Renewed Spirit of Discovery' to advance U.S. scientific, security, and economic interests through a robust exploration program in space. This Congressional Budget Office (CBO) study-prepared at the request of the Subcommittee on Science, Technology, and Space of the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee-assesses the implications of the new vision for both the content of NASA's future exploration programs and the funding that might be needed to execute them. The study also analyzes how NASA's budget might be affected if costs for its proposed new programs for space exploration grew as much as some of NASA's program costs have grown in the past. Concluding the analysis is an examination of alternatives for the future of the space shuttle program and the United States' involvement in the International Space Station.
