Advisory Council Reorganizes for Greater Effectiveness

Editor's Note: This is a blog excerpt from Steven Squyres, Chairman, NASA Advisory Council
The NASA Advisory Council (NAC), an independent group of scientists and aerospace experts who provide external guidance to NASA, will be restructured in the coming months to more accurately reflect the Agency’s structure and to improve its ability to deal with issues that cut across the Agency. The restructuring process, resulting from a recent internal review conducted under the direction of the NASA Administrator, Charles Bolden, will begin immediately and will be fully realized over the next several months. As Chairman of the NAC, I’m looking forward to putting this new structure in place.
