We all wonder where NASA’s new space development program will take us. What kind of technologies will we employ? What planets will we visit? What will happen to the International Space Station (ISS)?
All these questions and more where answered by NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver at the International Symposium for Personal and Commercial Spaceflight.
Here are the key notes.
- Private researchers and tourists will be able to travel to ISS and other orbital destination (“Vacation All I Ever Wanted!”)
- An international expedition will set out for a mission to asteroid (earlier plans were used during the filming of “Armageddon”)
- A new planet containing water, i.e. habitable will be discovered by The Webb Telescope
- Every earthquake and tsunami can be predicted way in advance via personal hand held computer device
- 98 percent of Earth-crossing asteroids are being tracked and cataloged
- Bases and outposts are being set up on the Moon (Honeymoon anybody?)
