1st Space Exploration Conference, January 30-February 1, 2005, Orlando, FL
02.02.2005
continuing the voyage

This is the pivotal moment for humanity's exploration of space. The decisions that will shape this undertaking are being made today, driven by the Vision for Space Exploration, the establishment of the Exploration Systems Mission Directorate, and the need to move to the future. We appreciate all who joined us both live and via the archived webcasts for the 1st Space Exploration Conference, held in Orlando, Fla., from January 30 through February 1, 2005.

This event not only marked the first anniversary of this announcement, but was also an integral step in transforming the Vision from a set of goals into concrete realities of space exploration, allowing us to reflect on the accomplishments of this year, and chart our plans for the coming year. It proved an invaluable opportunity for our colleagues in industry, academia, and the international community to share their own thoughts, plans, and goals to help us identify potential means of partnership and mutual progress.
