For the first time, the National Academies of Sciences and Engineering and the Institute of Medicine have released reports providing a president-elect with specific advice on science and technology issues.
Released only days before President Reagan's final budget was sent to Congress, the “white papers” recommend that NASA's space station be developed only if consistent with clearly stated long term space goals, that natural gas be promoted as an alternative to fossil fuels that release more CO2, and that Bush's science advisor should occupy a senior White House position such as assistant to the President.
