NASA is going to undertake a comprehensive review of the agency's current research and technology development plans to see how they align with the President's plan for human spaceflight, as outlined in the U.S. National Space Policy and the 2010 NASA Authorization Act. We look forward to the findings of that review, which will inform our decision making moving forward.Link: http://www.nasa.gov/exploration/news/peta_statement.html
