The National Research Council issued its second research recommendation report, "Solar and Space Physics: A Science for a Technological Society," which represents 18 months of research by more than 85 solar and space physicists and space system engineers and lays out major scientific goals for solar exploration on the next 10 years."

either a daring adventure or nothing."
