Risk and Exploration: Earth, Sea and the Stars, NASA Administrator’s Symposium, September 26-29, 2004
Steven J. Dick (ed); Keith L. Cowing (ed)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
The record of a unique meeting on risk & exploration held under the auspices of NASA Administrator Sean O’Keefe. Its goals were precipitated by the ongoing dialogue on risk & exploration in the wake of the “Columbia shuttle accident,” the Hubble Space Telescope servicing question, &, in a broader sense, by the many NASA programs that inevitably involve a balance between risk & forward-looking exploration. Broadcast on NASA TV, the meeting, extraordinarily broad in scope & participant experience, offers insights on why we explore, how to balance risk & exploration, how different groups define & perceive risk differently, & the importance of exploration to a creative society. Illustrations.
