Update to the 2012 Astrophysics Implementation Plan
The NASA Astrophysics Division has released a 2014 Update to its 2012 Astrophysics Implementation Plan.
In December 2012, the Astrophysics Division issued an Astrophysics Implementation Plan describing how the recommendations of the 2010 Decadal Survey were to be realized by NASA within the constrained fiscal landscape.
Several programmatic changes, budgetary updates, and new events have occurred since then. The Astrophysics Division has described these changes, as well as the evolution of its plans for responding to the 2010 Decadal Survey, in a 2014 Update to the 2012 Astrophysics Implementation Plan.
Both the 2014 Update and the 2012 Astrophysics Implementation Plan are posted at http://science.nasa.gov/astrophysics/documents.
The Update to the Astrophysics Implementation Plan will be discussed by Paul Hertz, Director of the NASA Astrophysics Division, at the NASA Town Hall during the upcoming meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Seattle, WA. The NASA Town Hall will be held at 12:45 pm on Wednesday, January 7, 2015, in the Washington State Convention Center.
