NASA: Issues Implementing the NASA Authorization Act Of 2010: Congressional Testimony
DIANE Publishing, 2011 - 16 pages
NASA projects drive critical innovation in and understanding of space, but most cost more and take longer to develop than planned. Today's fiscal environment highlights why that pattern is unsustainable, now more than ever. The NASA Authorization Act of 2010 challenged NASA to develop new technologies for space exploration. This testimony discusses: (1) how the Continuing Appropriations Act of 2011 continues the restrictions in the fiscal year 2010 Appropriations Act, and how they relate to the recently enacted NASA Authorization Act of 2010; and (2) steps NASA should take to increase the likelihood of success as it implements its new direction. This is a print on demand edition of an important, hard-to-find publication.
