In April 2014, the Nuclear Science Advisory Committee was charged to conduct a new study of the opportunities and priorities for United States nuclear physics research and to recommend a long range plan for the coordinated advancement of the Nation’s nuclear science program over the next decade. The entire community actively contributed to developing this plan. Ideas and goals, new and old, were examined and community priorities were established. The Long Range Plan Working Group gathered at Kitty Hawk, NC to converge on the recommendations. In this talk I will discuss the vision for the future of nuclear science in the U. S. that has emerged from this process. The new plan, “Reaching for the Horizon”, offers the promise of great leaps forward in our understanding of nuclear science and new opportunities for nuclear science to serve society.
