       America's Future in Space



      In this illustrated talk, Dr. Tyson, who was one of the nine 

      commissioners appointed by President Bush to advise on how

      to implement the new White House space vision, will describe

      the social and political climate that led to America's space

      exploration initiative.  Dr.Tyson will follow with an account of

      the short and long-term consequences of this plan to NASA  

      and its science portfolio. Subjects include international

      cooperation, the role of prize money to promote innovation,

      propulsion initiatives, the role of private industry, and the

      perennial debate of humans versus robotic  exploration.                   

Dr. Tyson will be available for two hours, allowing plenty of

      time at the end for questions and open discussion.
