2005 (hereinafter referred to as the Heliophysics Roadmap, or the Roadmap). 25 26 A PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT OF NASA’S HELIOPHYSICS PROGRAM Grade: B Finding: The highest-level objectives and research focus areas in the NASA Heliophysics Roadmap align with the decadal survey science challenges. However, there are several science questions in the decadal survey—most notably, coronal heating, the magnetospheres and ionospheres of other planets, and interaction with the interstellar medium—that receive little or no attention in the Roadmap.

SOURCE: Data courtesy of NASA. 1-6 Cost Growth in Missions Under Development at the Time of the Survey The 2003 decadal survey endorsed completion of three major NASA missions under development in 2003: Solar-B, STEREO, and SDO. The budget totals for completing Solar-B and STEREO are close to the budgets in the decadal survey. However, the decadal survey assumed that SDO could be completed in 2008 for an additional $315 million. In reality, SDO will require at least $700 million more before its launch in late 2009 or in 2010.

Explorer missions . . , 2003, p. 62. , 2003, p. 36. while the IBEX mission (launched October 2008) will use state-of-the-art particle imaging techniques to examine the boundary between the interstellar medium and the heliosphere. The long and successful history of the Explorer Program has evidenced attributes of missions typically led by principal investigators. These missions are conducted very close to the initial schedule and are completed with little deviation from the initially specified (capped) costs.
