Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) plays a crucial role in development of new propulsion technology for NASA's future space transportation. This category illustrates NASA's vision and mission in expanding the horizon of the space frontier for science and research by developing more reliable, safe, and less costly space transportation systems. NASA's Integrated Space Transportation Plan (ISTP) is designed to benefit the International Space Station, Space Shuttle, and NASA's science and research objectives. ISTP is designed to extend the life of the Space Shuttle for continued safe operations. It will also develop the Orbital Space Plane; this project will provide a new transfer capability to ensure access to and from the International Space Station. ISTP will develop the Next Generation Launch Technology Program in areas such as propulsion, structures and operations for the next generation Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) under the Space Launch Initiative (SLI). The SLI will focus on the Orbital Space Plane and Next Generation Launch Technology, including third generation RLV efforts.
