A Journey to Inspire, Innovate, and Discover

A Journey to Inspire, Innovate, and Discover

Date: June 2014
Creator: The President’s Commission on Implementation of United States Space Exploration
Description: On January 14, 2004, President George W. Bush announced a new vision for America’s civil space program that calls for human and robotic missions to the Moon, Mars, and beyond. This vision set forth goals of: returning the Space Shuttle safely to flight; completing the International Space Station (ISS); phasing out the Space Shuttle when the ISS is complete (about 2010); sending a robotic orbiter and lander to the Moon; sending a human expedition to the Moon as early as 2015, but no later than 2020; conducting robotic missions to Mars in preparation for a future human expedition; and conducting robotic exploration across the solar system. Such a focus for the American space program has not existed since the Apollo era and establishes a much-needed direction and purpose for our national space efforts. The Commission sought extensive input for their deliberations, from within the U.S. government and directly from the public in the United States and abroad. The Commission held five televised public hearings, meeting in: Washington, D.C.; Dayton, Ohio; Atlanta, Georgia; San Francisco, California; and New York City. The Commission heard public testimony from 96 individuals representing academia, industry, media, teachers, students, entrepreneurs, astronauts, labor unions, state governments, federal ...

Rebooting the Government Printing Office: Keeping America Informed in the Digital Age

Rebooting the Government Printing Office: Keeping America Informed in the Digital Age

Date: January 2013
Creator: National Academy of Public Administration
Description: The Government Printing Office (GPO) opened its doors the day that Abraham Lincoln was inaugurated as the 16th President of the United States. For the past 152 years, the GPO has played a critical role in keeping the nation informed—ensuring permanent public access to authentic government information, including such historic documents as the Emancipation Proclamation and official journals of government such as the Congressional Record and the Federal Register. Like the rest of the publishing industry, the GPO of the 21st Century has been forced to manage the decline of print and the transition to digital publishing. At the same time, GPO has faced the challenge of performing broader government responsibilities in an increasingly digital world. Recognizing this changing environment, Congress mandated that the National Academy of Public Administration (the Academy) conduct a broad operational review of GPO. The Academy formed a five-member Panel of Fellows to conduct a ten-month study of the agency’s current role, its operations, and its future direction. The Panel concluded that GPO’s core mission remains valid, but that the agency—and the rest of the federal government—will need to continue to “reboot” for the digital age. The Panel’s recommendations are intended to position the federal government ...
