Subject: "Beyond the Moon: A New Roadmap for Human Space Exploration

Join The Planetary Society for an introduction to its new "Roadmap for
Human Space Exploration in the 21st Century," which will be presented
to the new Administration and Congress. Key elements of the plan will
touch on the driving goal for human spaceflight, the future of the
lunar program, renewed commitment to Earth observations from space,
and possible new human mission objectives.
The impetus for the Roadmap came from a February workshop,
co-sponsored by The Planetary Society and Stanford University,
entitled "Examining the Vision: Balancing Science and Exploration."
The Planetary Society has also gathered input from several public Town
Halls on Space. The Roadmap was formulated with an eye to the
world's current economic situation.
