Seeking a Human Spaceflight Program Worthy of a Great Nation by Review of U.S. Human Spaceflight Plans Committee ( - 0).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/seeking-a-human-spaceflight-program-worthy-of-a-great-nation/
"The [Review of U.S. Human Space Flight Plans Committee] shall conduct an independent review of ongoing U.S. human space flight plans and programs, as well as alternatives, to ensure the nation is pursuing the best trajectory for the future of human space flight – one that is safe, innovative, affordable, and sustainable. The Committee should aim to identify and characterize a range of options that spans the reasonable possibilities for continuation of U.S. human space flight activities beyond retirement of the Space Shuttle. The identification and characterization of these options should address the following objectives: a) expediting a new U.S. capability to support utilization of the International Space Station (ISS); b) supporting missions to the Moon and other destinations beyond low Earth orbit (LEO); c) stimulating commercial space flight capability; and d) fitting within the current budget profile for NASA exploration activities." This is their final report. ( from the Committee Charter)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
      .
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
      .
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen. Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
      .
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://www.nasa.gov/offices/hsf/meetings/10_22_pressconference.html (regular and high quality PDF links are on this page)
      .
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

I would do the Preface, too, but I would insist on playing the Star Wars theme behind my voice-over. I suppose that's nothing we could negotiate.

LOL! Absolutely no way. Play it on headphones while you're reading it, so that it doesn't leak into the recording.

(I think Star Trek would be the better theme, though.) ;)

Hmmmm. Sign me up for a boring Preface. I already know what you're going to say.
