NASA's Future and Why Should I Care
This presentation has two major components. First it looks at current plans for NASA's near term future to include the termination of the Space shuttle Program and the extension of the International Space Station (ISS) to the year 2020. It also examines the current plan to commercialize access to low earth orbit for both cargo and astronauts. For human exploration beyond low earth orbit NASA will develop the next generation vehicles known as the Space Launch System, or SLS, which will replace the now defunct Constellation Program.

The second half of this presentation attempts to answer the question, "why should I care" about NASA?
