SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Summary The 2007 Beam Power Challenge is designed to promote the development of new power distribution technologies. These technologies can be applied to many aspects of space exploration, including surface- or space-based pointto-point power transmission or delivery for robotic and/or human expeditions to planetary surfaces. This challenge may also support the development of farterm space infrastructure concepts such as space elevators and solar power satellites. This challenge requires teams to design and build a climber (a machine that can go up and down a tether ribbon) while carrying a payload. Power will be beamed from a transmitter to a receiver on the climber. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES I. Challenge Basis and Prize Amount The 2007 Beam Power Challenge total purse is $500,000. Each climber must climb to a specified height traveling at a minimum speed of 1 meter per second. The teams with the highest score (the product of average velocity and payload mass normalized by the climber mass) will win the competition. II. Eligibility The Centennial Challenges Program has established the following language in the 2007 Beam Power Challenge Team Agreement governing eligibility. For this section, CHALLENGE is the 2007 Beam Power Challenge. A TEAM is an individual or private entity, or a group of individuals or VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:25 Aug 08, 2007 Jkt 211001 private entities, that register to participate in CHALLENGE. A TEAM is comprised of a TEAM LEADER and TEAM MEMBERS. A TEAM LEADER is, by definition, also a TEAM MEMBER. TEAM MEMBERS are participants on the TEAM that are not the TEAM LEADER. To be eligible to win the CHALLENGE prize, an individual or entity, (a) in the case of a private entity, shall be incorporated in and maintain a primary place of business in the United States, and (b) in the case of an individual, whether participating individually or as a member of a group, shall be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States.

In this notice, NARA is soliciting comments concerning the following information collection: Title: Presidential Libraries Museum Visitor Survey. OMB number: 3095–00XX. Agency form number: N/A. Type of review: Regular. Affected public: Individuals who visit the museums at the Presidential libraries. Estimated number of respondents: 75,000. Estimated time per response: 15 minutes. Frequency of response: On occasion (when an individual visits a Presidential Library or Museum.) Estimated total annual burden hours: 18,750 hours. Abstract: The survey will be comprised of a set of questions designed to allow for a statistical analysis that will ultimately provide actionable information to NARA. The survey includes questions that measure the visitor’s satisfaction in general and with specific aspects of their visit. These questions serve as dependent variables for analytical purposes. Other questions provide attitudinal, behavioral, and demographic data that are used to help understand variation in the satisfaction variables. Using statistical analyses, Harris Interactive will determine the factors that drive the visitor’s perceptions of quality and satisfaction with the Library they visited. Additionally, natural groupings of visitors defined by similarity based on these attitudinal, behavioral, and demographic variables can be developed and targeted for outreach purposes. The information collected through this effort will inform program activity, operation, and oversight, and will benefit Library and NARA staff and management in making critical decisions about resource allocation, museum operation and program direction. Dated: August 2, 2007. Martha Morphy, Assistant Archivist for Information Services. [FR Doc. E7–15609 Filed 8–8–07; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 7515–01–P VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:25 Aug 08, 2007 Jkt 211001 NATIONAL ARCHIVES AND RECORDS ADMINISTRATION Records Schedules; Availability and Request for Comments National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). ACTION: Notice of availability of proposed records schedules; request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) publishes notice at least once monthly of certain Federal agency requests for records disposition authority (records schedules). Once approved by NARA, records schedules provide mandatory instructions on what happens to records when no longer needed for current Government business. They authorize the preservation of records of continuing value in the National Archives of the United States and the destruction, after a specified period, of records lacking administrative, legal, research, or other value. Notice is published for records schedules in which agencies propose to destroy records not previously authorized for disposal or reduce the retention period of records already authorized for disposal. NARA invites public comments on such records schedules, as required by 44 U.S.C. 3303a(a). DATES: Requests for copies must be received in writing on or before September 10, 2007 (Note that the new time period for requesting copies has changed from 45 to 30 days after publication). Once the appraisal of the records is completed, NARA will send a copy of the schedule. NARA staff usually prepare appraisal memorandums that contain additional information concerning the records covered by a proposed schedule. These, too, may be requested and will be provided once the appraisal is completed. Requesters will be given 30 days to submit comments. ADDRESSES: You may request a copy of any records schedule identified in this notice by contacting the Life Cycle Management Division (NWML) using one of the following means: Mail: NARA (NWML), 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740–6001. E-mail: requestschedule@nara.gov. FAX: 301–837–3698. Requesters must cite the control number, which appears in parentheses after the name of the agency which submitted the schedule, and must provide a mailing address. Those who desire appraisal reports should so indicate in their request. PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 44875 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Laurence Brewer, Director, Life Cycle Management Division (NWML), National Archives and Records Administration, 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740–6001. Telephone: 301–837–1539. E-mail: records.mgt@nara.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Each year Federal agencies create billions of records on paper, film, magnetic tape, and other media. To control this accumulation, agency records managers prepare schedules proposing retention periods for records and submit these schedules for NARA’s approval, using the Standard Form (SF) 115, Request for Records Disposition Authority. These schedules provide for the timely transfer into the National Archives of historically valuable records and authorize the disposal of all other records after the agency no longer needs them to conduct its business. Some schedules are comprehensive and cover all the records of an agency or one of its major subdivisions. Most schedules, however, cover records of only one office or program or a few series of records. Many of these update previously approved schedules, and some include records proposed as permanent. No Federal records are authorized for destruction without the approval of the Archivist of the United States. This approval is granted only after a thorough consideration of their administrative use by the agency of origin, the rights of the Government and of private persons directly affected by the Government’s activities, and whether or not they have historical or other value. Besides identifying the Federal agencies and any subdivisions requesting disposition authority, this public notice lists the organizational unit(s) accumulating the records or indicates agency-wide applicability in the case of schedules that cover records that may be accumulated throughout an agency. This notice provides the control number assigned to each schedule, the total number of schedule items, and the number of temporary items (the records proposed for destruction). It also includes a brief description of the temporary records. The records schedule itself contains a full description of the records at the file unit level as well as their disposition. If NARA staff has prepared an appraisal memorandum for the schedule, it too includes information about the records. Further information about the disposition process is available on request.
