NASA has accomplished many great feats since that time, in spite of being subjected to constantly shifting priorities and mixed signals from Congress and the administration. In the absence of a clear national consensus on the role and function of a space program, a mixture of historical circumstance and political factors have caused NASAs organizational culture to adopt some behaviors that have held the agency back. To better understand NASAs situation, the Space Foundation undertook a study to explore NASAs current state and options for the future.
Based on in-depth historical research and interviews with nearly 100 space leaders, PIONEERING: Sustaining U.S. Leadership in Space addresses issues within the agency and makes recommendations on its governance and funding.
|Contents note:||Introduction - Assessing explanations for NASA's performance - Cultural issues at NASA - The benefits of a focused purpose for NASA - The pioneering doctrine - Strategic recommendations - Tactical recommendations.|
