VISION FOR SPACE
In January 2004, the President of the United States outlined his vision for U.S. Space Exploration, to which NASA responded with a framework titled "The Vision for Space Exploration" (VSE). Along with NASA's other directorates, ARMD has developed ways to contribute to this vision.

Aeronautics research and space exploration have always been linked. Advances in our understanding of aerodynamics, aerothermodynamics, flight dynamics and control, materials, structures, and human interface technologies helped make spaceflight possible.

Today, ARMD works to advance our knowledge critical to the entry, descent, and landing of vehicles on other planets. We're also developing the fundamental methods, concepts, tools, and technologies that are required to achieve hypersonic flight through Earth's atmosphere and through the atmospheres of other planets.

For background and updates on the VSE, visit the Vision for Space Exploration Web site.
