THE NASA ROLE IN MAJOR AREAS OF HUMAN CONCERN TRANSPORTATION

AFTER INTRODUCING SOME OF THE GENERAL FACTORS THAT HAVE AFFECTED PROGRESS IN THE TRANSPORTATION AREA, NASA PROGRAM ELEMENTS ARE EXAMINED TO ILLUSTRATE RELEVANT POINTS OF CONTACT. INTERPRETIVE STEPS ARE TAKEN THROUGHOUT THE STATEMENT TO SHOW A FEW OF THE MORE IMPORTANT WAYS PEOPLE'S LIVES HAVE BEEN AFFECTED AS A RESULT OF THE WORK OF NASA AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS FUNCTIONING IN THIS AREA. THE PRINCIPAL DOCUMENTS USED AND INTERVIEWS CONDUCTED ARE IDENTIFIED AFTER THE CONCLUSION OF THIS STATEMENT. THIS STATEMENT, IT SHOULD BE NOTED, IS INCOMPLETE IN MANY RESPECTS, PRIMARILY BECAUSE IT REFLECTS ONLY A SMALL NUMBER OF THE TECHNICAL, ECONOMIC, AND SOCIAL FORCES AFFECTING AMERICAN LIFE. TAKEN AS A SUMMARY STATEMENT, HOWEVER, IT HOPEFULLY WILL PROVIDE A USEFUL BASIS FOR BETTER UNDERSTANDING NASA'S ROLE IN THE NATIONAL ATTEMPT TO UPGRADE THE QUALITY OF TRANSPORTATION SERVICES. /AUTHOR/
