Comprehensive scientific investigations into the
Origin, Evolution, and Destiny of the Earth, the
Solar System, and the Universe

NASAs Strategic Goals
  • Strategic Goal 1
  • Fly the Shuttle as safely as possible until its
    retirement, not later than 2010.
  • Strategic Goal 2
  • Complete the International Space Station in a
    manner consistent with NASAs International
    Partner commitments and the needs of human
    exploration.

.
  • Strategic Goal 3
  • Develop a balanced overall program of science,
    exploration, and aeronautics consistent with the
    redirection of the human spaceflight program to
    focus on exploration
  • Strategic Goal 4
  • Bring a new Crew Exploration Vehicle into
    service as soon as possible after Shuttle
    retirement.
  • Strategic Goal 5
  • Encourage a pursuit of appropriate partnerships
    with the emerging commercial space sector.
  • Strategic Goal 6
  • Establish a lunar return program having the
    maximum possible utility for later missions to
    Mars and other destinations.

NASAs Strategic Goals
Strategic Goal 3 Develop a balanced overall
program of science, exploration, and aeronautics
consistent with the redirection of the human
spaceflight program to focus on exploration.
Sub-goal 3a Study Earth from space to advance
scientific understanding and meet societal needs.
Earth is changing on all spatial and temporal
scales. The purpose of NASAs Earth science
program is to develop a scientific understanding
of Earths system and its response to natural or
human-induced changes and to improve prediction
of climate, weather, and natural hazards.

NASAs Strategic Goals and Outcomes
  • Appendix NASAs Strategic Goals and Outcomes
  • Sub-goals
  • Sub-goal 3A
  • Study Earth from space to advance scientific
    understanding and meet societal needs.
  • 3A.1. Progress in understanding and improving
    predictive capability for changes in the
  • ozone layer, climate forcing, and air
    quality associated with changes in
  • atmospheric composition.
  • 3A.2. Progress in enabling improved predictive
    capability for weather and extreme
  • weather events.
  • 3A.3. Progress in quantifying global land cover
    change and terrestrial and marine
  • productivity, and in improving carbon
    cycle and ecosystem models.
  • 3A.4. Progress in quantifying the key
    reservoirs and fluxes in the global water cycle
    and
  • in improving models of
    water cycle change and fresh water availability.
  • 3A.5. Progress in understanding the role of
    oceans, atmosphere, and ice in the climate
  • system and in improving
    predictive capability for its future evolution.
  • 3A.6. Progress in characterizing and
    understanding Earth surface changes and
  • variability of Earths
    gravitational and magnetic fields.
  • 3A.7. Progress in expanding and accelerating
    the realization of societal benefits from
  • Earth system science.

Science Mission DirectorateFully Supports NASAs
Mission
  • Understand and Protect Our Home Planet by using
    our view from space to study the Earth system and
    improve prediction of Earth system change
  • Help Explore the Universe and Search for Life by
    continuing scientific investigations into the
    origin, evolution, and destiny of the universe
    and our solar system, and by applying our
    scientific understanding of the Earth system to
    the identification and study of Earth-like
    planets around other stars
  • Inspire the Next Generation of Explorers by
    providing Earth and Space science content and
    training to educators, and by sponsoring the
    education and early careers of Earth scientists,
    astronomers, physicists
