  • Constellation Program Overview

2
A Bold Vision for Space Exploration, Authorized
by Congress
  • Complete the International Space Station
  • Safely fly the Space Shuttle until 2010
  • Develop and fly the Crew Exploration Vehicle no
    later than 2014 (goal of 2012)
  • Return to the Moon no later than 2020
  • Extend human presence across the solar system and
    beyond
  • Implement a sustained and affordable human and
    robotic program
  • Develop supporting innovative technologies,
    knowledge, and infrastructures
  • Promote international and commercial
    participation in exploration

NASA Authorization Act of 2005
The Administrator shall establish a program to
develop a sustained human presence on the Moon,
including a robust precursor program to promote
exploration, science, commerce and U.S.
preeminence in space, and as a stepping stone to
future exploration of Mars and other destinations.

The Moon - the 1st Step to Mars and Beyond
  • Regaining and extending operational experience in
    a hostile planetary environment
  • Developing capabilities needed for opening the
    space frontier
  • Preparing for human exploration of Mars
  • Science operations and discovery

Next Step in Fulfilling Our Destiny As Explorers
6
Program Management Approach
  • Maintain a Lunar focus were building a system
    for sending crew and cargo to the Moon and beyond
  • Remain aggressive challenge the team to do more
    sooner
  • Foster an agency-wide focus use talent all the
    centers have to offer
  • Requirements-based organization structure

7
Program Management Approach
  • Synergize with Station and Shuttle Programs
  • Shared Contracting Where Appropriate
  • Shared Workforce and Facilities Where Possible
  • Work Smooth Transition from System Development to
    Operations

8
Constellation Organization
  • Program staff in place
  • Level II functional areas defined Apollo
    5-box structure plus Advanced Projects Office
  • Program Planning and Control
  • Test and Verification
  • Operations Integration
  • Systems Engineering and Integration
  • Safety, Reliability and Quality Assurance
  • Advanced Projects Office to focus on trades and
    definition of element and system requirements for
    Lunar and beyond
  • Will spawn new projects as requirements mature
    and program is ready to move to procurement phase

Servicing the International Space Station
  • NASA may invite industry to offer commercial crew
    and cargo delivery service to and from the
    Station
  • The CEV will be designed for lunar missions and
    is planned to service the International Space
    Station
  • The CEV will be able to transport crew to and
    from the station and stay for 6 months

  • 4 crewmembers to and from the surface
  • Seven days on the surface
  • Lunar outpost crew rotation
  • Global access capability
  • Anytime return to Earth
  • Capability to land 21 metric tons of dedicated
    cargo
  • Airlock for surface activities

Possible South Pole Outpost
  • The lunar South Pole is a likely candidate for
    outpost site
  • Elevated quantities of hydrogen, possibly water
    ice (e.g., Shackelton Crater)
  • Several areas with greater than 80 sunlight and
    less extreme temperatures
  • Incremental deployment of systems one mission
    at a time
  • Power system
  • Communications/navigation
  • Habitat
  • Rovers
  • Etc.

  • The United States must lead the expansion of the
    space frontier to continue to maintain our world
    leadership role, and for the security of the
    nation.
  •  
  • Great nations do great and ambitious things. We
    must continue to be great.
