In 2009, NASA asked for a decadal survey that would provide an integrated set of recommendations for life and physical sciences research in microgravity and partial gravity for the coming decade. This talk will review the final report, the culmination of a two year effort by 90 scientists and seven study panels to review and provide guidance on a science program that covers a broad range of life and physical science disciplines that both enable, and are enabled by the human exploration of space.
