The second report focuses on NASA’s plan for the ISS. In June , the President’s Commission on Implementation of United States Space Exploration Policy issued a report recommending among other things that NASA ask the National Research Council (NRC) to reevaluate space science priorities to take advantage of the exploration vision.   A new report of the National Research Council, “Pathways to Exploration: Rationales and Approaches for a U.S. Program of Human Space Exploration”, describes the rationales for human spaceflight beyond low Earth orbit and develops recommendations that could guide the U.S. human spaceflight program in a sustainable manner.

On J , the President directed NASA to implement, as soon as possible, the recommendations of the Presidential Commission on the Space Shuttle Challenger Accident. The President requested that NASA report, within 30 days. NASA asked the National Research Council (NRC) and others to study the long-term utilization and operation of the ISS. These studies include the NRC report on Institutional Arrangements for Space Station Research (Reference 1), which recommended a utilization approach that uses a Space Station.
