Constellation National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Activities

    NASA has prepared an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the implementation of the Constellation Program. The Constellation Program EIS encompasses NASA's initial efforts to extend the human presence throughout the Solar System. Major elements of the Constellation Program are currently focused on providing the capability to transport humans and cargo to the moon, in support of lunar exploration missions, and to the International Space Station (ISS), while future efforts would support missions to Mars and beyond. The Constellation Programmatic EIS has been developed in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and discusses the purpose and need for the development of systems needed to support these missions. Links to more information on the Constellation Programmatic EIS and Environmental Assessments either underway or completed are described in the links below.
