The Aeronautics and Space Engineering Board (ASEB), on behalf of The National Academies, is seeking input papers on human spaceflight until July 9th, 2013. You can also read the current submissions.

From the website:
In addition to the many sources of focused input to this study, the Committee on Human Spaceflight recognizes the importance of reaching out to the communities interested in human exploration. This request for input papers is open to any and all interested individuals and groups wishing to submit their own ideas on the role of human spaceflight and their vision for a suggested future. In developing their papers, respondents are asked to carefully consider the following broad questions.

What are the important benefits provided to the United States and other countries by human spaceflight endeavors?

What are the greatest challenges to sustaining a U.S. government program in human spaceflight?

What are the ramifications and what would the nation and world lose if the United States terminated NASA's human spaceflight program?

Thanks for this. Time to start writing...perhaps I'll post a link here to mine when (if?) I finish it.

The current submissions really represent a broad spectrum from rational discourse to lolcrackpot.

Human spaceflight will never work. They explode in vacuum! Have to use a spaceship. Sorry NASA, I know it would have made a much easier time budgeting.
