“This week I am introducing a new feature from the Advanced Planning Office. The idea for the project came from listening to all of the conversations around the center about the uncertainty and changes before us in 2011. Much of the conversation that I hear is focused on what we will not be doing and the loss of our workforce. Undoubtedly it is going to be a difficult transition as some of our colleagues will be leaving the JSC community and yet we WILL continue the Human Exploration of Space. JSC will carry the torch forward and what we do today will determine how quickly we get to extend our reach into our solar system. So with the inspiration of Pat Rawlings, we would like to engage the JSC community on a discussion of what we CAN DO today that will ensure the below vision of JSC at the 100th anniversary of our landing on the moon. Enjoy and let us know what you think.”
