      The purpose of the Space Launch Initiative (SLI) is "to identify feasible
      options for future NASA space transportation and enable a decision regarding
      whether the agency should proceed into full-scale development of a new
      reusable launch vehicle system." This news page has information on current
      developments, fact sheets, and vehicle concepts. Several technology
      summaries describe the various areas of research for the SLI. For example,
      using neural networks in the vehicle's control and navigation would allow
      for automatic, intelligent adjustments and would take some of the burden off
      the crew. Safety is one of the primary concerns, which is demonstrated by
      the articles on crew escape systems and the Integrated Vehicle Health
      Management system. [CL]
