Removing the Barriers to Deep Space Exploration

Beyond Earth: Removing the Barriers to Deep Space Exploration is a presentation by NASA's Associate Administrator for Human Exploration and Operations Bill Gerstenmaier in which he convenes a panel discussion to consider the challenges facing the U.S. space exploration program. NASA's future Orion crewed spacecraft and the Space Launch System which will carry it into orbit will provide the United States an entirely new human space exploration capability, a flexible system that can extend human presence beyond low-Earth orbit and enable new missions of exploration in our solar system. The NASA and prime contractors panelists were:

-- William Gerstenmaier, associate administrator for human exploration and operations, NASA
-- Julie Van Kleek, vice president, advanced space and launch programs, Aerojet Rocketdyne
-- Charlie Precourt, vice president and general manager, ATK Space Launch Division
-- John Elbon, vice president and general manager, Boeing Space Exploration
-- Jim Crocker, vice president and general manager, civil space, Lockheed Martin Space Systems
