Alperin, NoamTain, Rong-wenUniversity of MiamiVisual Impairment and elevated Intracranial Pressure in Microgravity: New Focus for a Manageable Long-Duration Spaceflight RiskLong-term exposure to microgravity leads to increased intracranial pressure and progressive visual deterioration that can be irreversible. For historic reasons, a cardiovascular link is being pursued but evidence from a related clinical entity suggests a link to the cerebrospinal fluid hydrodynamicsAlperinNoamF.pdf
Michael Hawes Lockheed Martin CorporationNRC inputs_HawesHuman spaceflight has provided many benefits over several decades including discovery, economic benefit and a better way of life. The current international collaboration model of human spaceflight has been a great success and a positve model for futre missions.NRC_inputs_Hawes_Final.docx
Sabder retiredHuman Space Flight1. The US government has failed to establish a credible HSF strategy 2. Options for a good strategy exist, but require public ownership 3. The HSF could be a much more valuable national asset if it had a clear value proposition.Sander.Michael.J.doc
Friedman, Louis D.Strange, Nathan J.nonePaving Stones for the Flexible Path Into the Solar SystemAsteroid retrieval provides a near-term solution to create a sustainable human space program taking steps to Mars. The robotic asteroid retrieval technologies can be used to create additional interim milestones and even an asteroid transportation network for humans to Mars.FriedmanLStrangeN.pdf
Jolliff, Bradley L. Washington University in St. LouisWhy and How the United States must continue to lead the World in Human SpaceflightA strong Human Spaceflight Program is needed for US economic and technological world leadership. It must inspire the public, advance US energy independence and enable the US economy to grow through space development and exploration. The Moon is the destination of choice for near-term human activity.JolliffBradleyL.pdf
Gorenstein, PaulGorenstein, PaulHarvard-Smithsonian Center for AstrophysicsHuman Spaceflight and a Lunar BaseAn application of human spaceflight would be establishing, servicing, and occasionally upgrading a scientific station on the Moon. The station hosts a variety of instruments that operate autonomously. The targets are the variable X-ray/gamma-ray sky, the Sun’s electromagnetic and particle emissionsGorensteinPaul.pdf
Huntsman, David P. NASA/Glenn Research CenterAnswering the Questions: Why government and commercial human spaceflight; how to get there, how to keep it sustainable, and the need for NASA reform.There are near, medium, & very long-term reasons to have a civil human space program that encompasses human exploration, space development & an economic expansion akin to Europe’s expanding its economy to the New World Such goals are out of reach unless NASA reforms what it does and how it does it.HuntsmanDavidP.pdf
Van Vaerenbergh, StefanCornelis, PierreUniversité Libre de BruxellesNeed of spaceflight gravity from microbiology to geology studiesexperiments in microgravity, microbiology, geologyNeed of spaceflight gravity from microbiology to geology.pdf
Lawrence, Samuel J.Jolliff, Bradley L.Arizona State UniversityThe Benefits of Human Space Exploration to the United States and Other NationsAn American space program involving both humans and robots is required to maintain American security, freedom, and prosperity in the 21st century and will greatly benefit our economy, educational system, and technological infrastructure.LawrenceSamuelJ.pdf
Podnar, Gregg individualWe Must Explore MarsThis brief article addresses the need for, and benefits of human exploration beyond Earth, and the appropriate integration of manned and unmanned technologies, with a goal to extend the boundaries of human exploration by augmenting human abilities with robotic technologies.PodnarGregg.pdf

McMickell, M. BrettFletcher, MitchHoneywell, Inc.Input to the National Research Council's Committee on Human SpaceflightA sustainable human space exploration strategy is necessary to stabilize the space industrial base, support international collaboration, and outreach for education.mcmickellBrett.pdf
Greeson, David S. NASASeparating Human Spaceflight Policy from National PoliticsThe purpose of this white paper is to define a new basis for developing United States human spaceflight strategy that is separated from national politics. The new basis is founded in an understanding of national interests, strategic goals, and effective tactics.GreesonDavidS.pdf
Philip Crume The Moon SocietyUsing a US government human spaceflight program to support space commerce1. Important benefits? a) Background b) STEM c) Serendipity d) Paving the road for colonization 2. Challenges? a) Congress b) Failure to know your audience c) Realignment d) Funding 3. Consequences? a) Jumping the gun b) Blowback Closing thoughtsCrumePhilipB.doc
Pomerantz, William J.Whitesides, George T.; Isakowitz, SteveVirgin GalacticThe Benefits of Suborbital and Orbital Human SpaceflightHuman spaceflight offers economics, research, and inspirational values. Government exploration efforts improve and are improved by private exploration efforts. Attention should be paid to the emerging private suborbital space exploration industry, which offers key avenues for technology improvement.PomerantzWilliamJ.pdf
Sweetser, Theodore H. Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of TechnologyMars is the Vision, the Question is HowThe compelling goal for human space exploration is the search for alien life, and Mars is the most accessible arena. The best approach is to explore Mars telerobotically from a base dug in to one of its satellites. This has many advantages over alternative programs and is the fastest way to Mars.SweetserTheodoreH.pdf
Cheuvront, David L. Retired, NASA Johnson Space CenterAddressing the Challenges to Sustaining U.S. Government Human Spaceflight with DepotsSustainability of human spaceflight is challenged high complexity and associated high costs and long development schedules. Depots are shown to offer an opportunity for simultaneous achievement of higher reliability, lower cost, AND faster development of future launch vehicles and spacecraft.CheuvrontDavidL.doc
Maniaci, Michael T. University of Wisconsin MilwaukeeBold Aspirations from the Land of the Free: A Civilian’s Perspective of American SpaceflightA recent university graduate gives his perspective on the current state of American spaceflight and possibilities for the future.ManiaciMichaelT.doc
Cooke, Michael P. CitizenTheory for why we do not have a National Human Spaceflight PolicyA theory for why we do not have a National Human Spaceflight Policy is presented for consideration. The theory also suggest that Apollo 8 was the "root cuase" for the United States not having a National Human Spaceflight Policy.NRC on Human Spaceflight.docx

Nye, William S. The Planetary SocietyThe Goal Is MarsThe Planetary Society strongly supports human exploration of space with Mars as the goal. There, humans will explore and make discoveries that would utterly change the world. While our robotic missions accomplish remarkable and often astonishing things on Mars, they are precursors in exploration.NyeWilliamS.pdf
