Former NASA Administrators Griffin and Frosch to Address NRC Committee Tomorrow
Former NASA Administrators Robert Frosch and Michael Griffin will share their views on NASA's future tomorrow at a meeting of a National Research Council committee tasked with providing advice on NASA's strategic direction.
Griffin and Frosch are two of the six living former NASA administrators. Three others -- Jim Beggs, Dick Truly and Sean O'Keefe -- shared their views at the last NRC committee meeting. Dan Goldin, the sixth, is not yet listed as addressing the committee; its next meeting is August 6-7 in Irvine, CA.
The NRC committee is responding to a statement of task emanating from language included by Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) in the FY2012 appropriations bill that includes NASA to provide advice about NASA's strategic direction. Other individuals who will speak with the committee tomorrow include the following. The meeting is at the NRC's Keck Center, 500 Fifth Street, NW, Washington, DC.
The agenda for the meeting is posted on the NRC's website.
