Off the Earth, for the Earth

Homebound Trio Hands over Station Command

By Bill Gerstenmaier, Associate Administrator for Human Explorations and Operations

Space exploration has always created benefits for humankind -- from new technologies and discoveries, to deepening international relationships and inspiring young people to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math.

For more than 50 years, NASA has led the world in space with missions to extend human reach and transform our capabilities and understanding. We're currently implementing an ambitious plan that integrates NASA's activities across exploration and science. It focuses on new technologies to carry out robotic and human missions to the moon, an asteroid and Mars, while enabling us to live and work in space for the long term. This week, I will join with others in government, industry and academia at the AIAA 2013 conference in San Diego to discuss NASA's plans for the future and present a paper that captures the meaning of the phrase Off the Earth, For the Earth from the International Space Station Expedition 34 patch.
