Description

NASA SP 2012-4114. Rebecca Wright, Sandra Johnson, Steven J. Dick, editors.

October 1, 2008 marked NASA's 50th anniversary. During this time, the History Division at NASA Headquarters commissioned oral history interview to be undertaken with NASA senior management. This volume is the result and provides a snapshot of the thinking of NASA senior leadership on the occasion of its 50th anniversary and in the last year of the presidency of George W. Bush, only a month before the presidential election and in the midst of a worldwide economic crisis. At the time, the Agency was implementing a new Vision for Space Exploration intended to return humans to the Moon, to proceed onward to Mars, and to study the cosmos beyond. This volume is the result of conversations recorded during 2007 and 2008.
