Abstract: This program is a summary of a 355-page report describing a program for improving the effectiveness of underground construction. The report evaluates the potential benefits that can accrue to society from a transfer of many urban and other life-support functions to a sub-surface space. The capability to make these transfers hinges on (1) a large R&D effort, (2) a public policy decision to achieve the transfers, and (3) the creation of the institutional arrangements to execute and implement the program.
