... The committee concludes that a clear description of what constitutes scientific balance, why it is important, and especially the potential impact on NASA programs and national capabilities if balance is not achieved would provide the readers of this report the context from which to make better informed decisions regarding management and prioritization of these space science activities on an SMD-wide and discipline-by-discipline basis. There are numerous opportunities for intra-governmental and international collaboration in all areas of space science, as discussed in Chapter 4 of this report, and the decadal surveys describe the value of such activities and recommend many to be pursued.

... NASA still needs to decide how it will coordinate with the Department of Education and other agencies in education and public outreach, but it is essential that the parties directly involved with the science effort remain directly involved in certain aspects of the current program if it is to retain the current impact on students' interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics-related educational pursuits. With regard to public outreach, the committee is concerned that the scientific disciplines not be isolated from participation in the formulation and execution of public outreach activities, since these activities provide a unique opportunity to give investigators an unfiltered, timely mechanism to communicate directly with the public.
