National Space Council Gets Report On Human Spaceflight In Low-Earth Orbit

Details Four Goals For Human Spaceflight In LEO

NASA and the Departments of State and Commerce have submitted a report to the National Space Council outlining future opportunities and challenges for human spaceflight in low-Earth orbit (LEO), and its potential economic contributions to the broader field of exploration.  

The National Space Council requested NASA lead an interagency effort to produce the report, entitled 'A Strategy for Human Spaceflight in Low Earth Orbit and Economic Growth in Space,' during its February meeting.

The report details four overarching goals for human spaceflight in LEO that were developed in collaboration with NASA's interagency partners:

  • To achieve a continuous U.S. presence in LEO – both NASA astronauts and private citizens – in order to support the use of space by U.S. citizens, companies, academia, and international partners and to maintain a permanent American foothold on the nearest part of the space frontier.
  • To create a regulatory environment in LEO that enables American commercial activities to thrive.
  • To conduct human spaceflight research in LEO that will advance the technology and systems required for long-duration spaceflight systems, including systems for interplanetary travel and permanent space habitation.
  • To expand and extend commercial opportunity though international partnerships and engagement.

These goals are among the priorities of NASA's exploration plans for the coming years. NASA will continue to work with its interagency partners to achieve these objectives and milestones with commercial crew and advancement of long-duration human spaceflight systems.

The report is for intra-governmental use only, due to the inclusion of sensitive information. However, an executive summary is available online.
