NASA launches another Web site

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has created a Web site to allow the public to comment on plans for U.S. human space flight activities.

NASA said the Web site will allow the Review of U.S. Human Space Flight Plans Committee to facilitate a two-way conversation with the public about the future direction of the agency's space flight programs. In addition to providing documents and information, NASA said the site will allow the public to track committee activities, receive regular updates and provide input through tools such as Twitter, Flickr, user-submitted questions, polls and RSS feeds.

The human space flight program belongs to everyone, committee chairman Norman Augustine said. Our committee would hope to benefit from the views of all who would care to contact us.

The new Web site is available at http://hsf.nasa.gov.
