Aldridge Commission report to be published June 10
Posted: Thu, Jun 3, 2004, 8:18 PM ET (0018 GMT)
The President's Commission on Moon, Mars, and Beyond, also known as the Aldridge Commission, will release its final report on the new space exploration plan on June 10, Space News reported late Thursday. The 60-page report is scheduled to be released at a public event on the campus of George Washington University at 11 am EDT June 10. The commission, chaired by former Air Force secretary Pete Aldridge and including members from the scientific, business, and policy communities, was established by President Bush in January to study how NASA should implement the Vision for Space Exploration. The commission held five publish hearings across the US between February and May, taking testimony on a wide range of aspects of the exploration plan. The report is expected to focus more on broader organizational and planning issues associated with the exploration plan, rather that specific recommendations about technologies or other specific implementation details.
