Presentations were given by videoconference and WebEx to the teams of the NASA Astrobiology Institute (NAI) on December 1, 2006. The presenters were senior officials of the Science Mission Directorate (SMD) at NASA Headquarters.

The briefings cover the SMD Science Plan and the programs, particularly the flight programs, of the Planetary Science, Astrophysics, and Earth Science Divisions. Because of its scope and importance to astrobiology, a special presentation on the Mars Exploration Program was given as part of the Planetary Science Division programs.
