From the Document: "This document was developed through extensive interagency deliberation among United States Government department and agency representatives involved in the PP-IWG [Planetary Protection Interagency Working Group]. This Strategy will advance the Nation's role in the sustainable exploration of space by appropriately protecting other planetary bodies and the Earth from potentially harmful biological contamination from space exploration activities. The Strategy builds on efforts by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and other stakeholders in the Federal Government to develop a more cohesive national effort that balances scientific discovery, human exploration, and commercial activity in space."
