New NASA site orbits around manned space flight

Site includes Web 2.0 tools for interacting with NASA

NASA has launched a new Web site designed to let the public participate in a review of planned human space flights

The site provides access to documents and information, and will allow the public to track activities of a committee examining manned space flight, NASA said June 5. Visitors also can get updates and provide input through Web 2.0 tools such as Twitter, Flickr, polls and Really Simple Syndication feeds.

The NASA committee associated with the Web site is the Review of U.S. Human Space Flight Plans Committee.

The public can submit questions, upload documents or comment about topics relevant to the committee’s operations. The committee will conduct public meetings during the course of the review, NASA said.

The first meeting will be held June 17 in Washington.
