NASA An independent task force will review NASA's biological and physical research programs, including those projects planned for the International Space Station, the space agency announced Friday. The Research Maximization and Prioritization Task Force (REMAP) will review the productivity and priority of all the research programs under NASA's Office of Biological and Physical Research (OBPR). While REMAP is examine all of OBPR's programs, it is expected to focus on those planned for ISS. NASA officials, including administrator Sean O'Keefe, have said that studying ways to get the most science out of the station, given the limited time and resources of a three-person crew, is a major priority for NASA. REMAP will be chaired by Rae Silver, a member of the Young commission last year and a Columbia University professor. REMAP will complete its report and deliver it to the NASA Advisory Council in June.
