An Inspirational Place: NASM

Yesterday, I did something that I haven't done in many, many years. I went over to the National Air and Space Museum and simply wandered around for several hours. It is one of my favorite places, and I was there as recently as July, for the 40th anniversary celebration of Apollo 11. But, during official events, there is no time to simply wander and enjoy the displays.

It was a nice time to relax, dream and remind myself of the magic of flight!

Augustine Committee Work Update

Sorry for the long hiatus, it's been a busy summer!

For those of you who have been following along, you know that the Augustine Committee presented options to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and NASA on August 14, 2009. Since then, we have been busy writing our report.

You can see detailed transcripts of our meetings under the Human Space Flight Plans Review section on We hope to have our report out soon!
