Title:NASA Goals for Exploration

Abstract: From Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo to the Orion program, NASA has been a hub of technological development. With a new administration comes a new set of goals for NASA. This presentation will highlight the challenges from the space environment as NASA preserves its presence in low Earth orbit, expands its capabilities to launch humans into space, and explores a myriad of future options for human exploration, culminating with Mars.
