ISS illustration (NASA) NASA announced Tuesday that it has established a task force of experts to study the current status of the International Space Station program and suggest how it can be improved. The ISS Management and Cost Evaluation Task Force (IMCE) has been charged with examining how the assembly and operation of the ISS can be done in a "more efficient and effective manner." Three groups within the IMCE will focus on the science, engineering, and business and financial aspects of the project. The IMCE will be chaired by former Martin Marietta president Thomas Young, who also led an independent review of NASA's Mars exploration program last year; the panel also includes two Nobel laureates among its members. The IMCE will report its findings to the NASA Advisor Council by November 1, which will then present them to the NASA administrator.
