Goal: Develop New Capabilities by Advancing Leading-Edge Science

img

The goal of developing new capabilities by advancing leading-edge science represents a decision to postpone an advanced human mission until a new base of capability is developed with which to plan. The focus in the near term will be on advancing leading-edge science and the value of space assets to terrestrial needs. In this case, Prioritization Criteria 4, 5, and 8 will have primary importance, and Prioritization Criteria 6 and 7 may alsobe of importance in building the integrated research portfolio that best supports this policy goal.
