  • WHO: The Interagency Space Science and Technology Partnership Forum (S&T Partnership) is an informal body for the purpose of coordinating science and technology issues across the space agencies of the United States Government in order to more efficiently and effectively manage science and technology resources. The goal of the S&T Partnership is to leverage synergies and influence portfolios across space agencies in areas deemed pervasive and ready for collaboration. The principal partners of the S&T Partnership are the United States Air Force, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the National Reconnaissance Office. This event is open to U.S. citizens and U.S.-owned companies, with a special focus toward the space, science and technology industry and federally funded research and development centers (FFRDCs).

    WHAT: Open Forum: Information Exchange for Market Analysis of Commercial In-Space Assembly Activities

    WHEN: Tuesday, November 6, 2018, 8:00am-5:00pm

    WHERE: NASA Headquarters, 300 E Street SW, Washington, DC 20546

    Morning session: James E. Webb Auditorium

    Afternoon one-on-one sessions: Glennan Conference Room

    WHY: The S&T Partnership seeks to identify opportunities for development and demonstration of in-space assembly capabilities that provide mutual benefit to future government and commercial operational space missions by leveraging developments across government and industry.

    The one-day Open Forum will engage government space agencies in dialog with commercial companies to learn more about commercial investments in in-space assembly (iSA)-related systems, capability developments, and how these systems and developments relate to iSA capability needs of government space agencies within the S&T Partnership. Commercial companies will learn about the S&T Partnership landscape of iSA activities and will be allowed to sign up for one-on-one sessions with the partnership’s iSA panel to engage in dialog regarding the company’s vision for iSA and plans to infuse iSA into their business lines.

    The purpose of the Open Forum is to understand the current state of commercial investments in in-space assembly related systems and capability developments and how they may fit with the in-space assembly capability needs of any of the partners. The S&T Partnership is interested in in-space assembly related capabilities either currently available or under development, and spacecraft system developments that can be used to perform or demonstrate in-space assembly. The partnership intends to analyze the Open Forum one-on-one responses and answers to questionnaires to identify potential development synergies.

    All information obtained through this Open Forum will be used to help formulation of S&T Partnership recommendations for collaboration and strategies for future development of in-space assembly capabilities.

    If you would like to participate in a face-to-face meeting with the S&T Partnership panel after the forum, email hq-octevents@mail.nasa.gov.

    If you need to use parking at NASA Headquarters on the day of the event, email hq-octevents@mail.nasa.gov.

  • Dr. Ellen R. Stofan, former chief scientist at NASA and the first female director of the National Air and Space Museum, will share her vision for the future of the Museum and how the museum is helping lead the national commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Lunar Program at a National Press Club Headliners Luncheon on Monday, October 22.

    Stofan, who was named the John and Adrienne Mars director of the National Air and Space Museum this past April, brings more than 25 years of relevant experience to the position. Most recently, Stofan was chief scientist at NASA (2013-2016), serving as the principal advisor to former Administrator Charles Bolden on NASA’s strategic planning and programs. Prior to joining the team at NASA, Dr. Stofan served for 13 years as vice president and senior scientist at Proxemy Research, a Washington-area consulting firm specializing in planetary research. Dr. Stofan earned her bachelor’s degree in geology at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, and her master’s and doctoral degrees at Brown University, both in geological sciences. Dr. Stofan has received numerous awards and honors for her career accomplishments, including the Presidential Early Award for Scientists and Engineers and the NASA Distinguished Service Medal.

    Lunch will be served in the club’s Holeman Lounge at 12:30 p.m., with remarks beginning at 1 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session ending at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $25 for National Press Club members (members may purchase two tickets at this rate) and $39 for all other non-member tickets. 

    For all ticketing-related questions, please email reservations@press.org. Tickets must be paid for at the time of purchase. To submit a question for the speaker in advance, put AIR & SPACE in the subject line and email to president@press.org. The deadline for submitting questions in advance is 10 a.m. on the day of the luncheon.

  • We are honored that this will be Dr. Stofan’s first luncheon program in the Dulles Community since her appointment. Dr. Stofan was NASA’s Chief Scientist, where, among many other innovative projects, she helped develop a long-range plan to get humans to Mars. She supported NASA’s science programs in everything from astrophysics to Earth and planetary science and collaborated on science policy with the National Science and Technology Council and as President Barack Obama’s science advisor. She is the first female Director of the National Air and Space Museum.

    The National Air and Space Museum symbolizes America’s technological contribution to mankind, just as the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island represent our cultural heritage. Dr. Stofan will bring us up-to-date on efforts to reimagine America’s favorite Museum (one Museum, two locations), and to further inform, educate, and inspire the next generation of innovators and explorers.

    As-Salamu Alaikum! 

    There are one million Muslim Uyghurs kept in the Nazi Style concentration camps in China. Uyghur Muslims have not committed any crime other than saying لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا ٱلله مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ ٱلله. Our Muslim sisters are forced to getting married to Buddhist Chinese to save their family members from the concentration camps. You have stood up for Palestinians, you have stood up for Syrians, you have stood up for Rohingya Muslims, now its time to raise your voice for your forgotten brothers and sisters in China, The Uyghur Muslims.

    The Uyghur Entrepreneurs Network is organizing an awareness event at our Uyghur community Center in Fairfax VA. Our goal is to create awareness in our Muslim community.

    Uyghur Muslim scholar and NASA scientist Dr. Erkin Siddiq will be the keynote speaker in the event. Family members of the victims in the concentration camps will share their personal stories at the event. Delicious Uyghur food will be served.

    Sincerely, 

    The Uyghur Entrepreneurs Network

  • One Year: 1968, An American Odyssey Book Club

    Tuesday, October 16, 2018, 5:30 p.m.

    Join staff from the National Portrait Gallery (NPG) and the DC Public Library for a monthly discussion of portraits and prose commemorating the 50th anniversary of the museum and 1968. Each month, an NPG staff member will lead a tour of the exhibit One Year: 1968, An American Odyssey. Following the tour, a DCPL librarian will lead a discussion of a featured book related to the portraits, Washington, D.C., and 1968. 

    On October 16, we will discuss Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race by Margot Lee Shetterly. 

    Before John Glenn orbited the earth, or Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of dedicated female mathematicians known as "human computers" used pencils, slide rules, and adding machines to calculate the numbers that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space. Hidden Figures follows the interwoven accounts of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden - four African American women who participated in some of NASA's greatest successes. It chronicles their careers over nearly three decades as they faced challenges, forged alliances, and used their intellect to change their own lives, and their country's future.

    Other dates in this series: 
    September 18 - Hendrix on Hendrix, Interviews and Encounters with Jimi Hendrix by Steven Roby

    November 13 - An Organizers Tale: Speeches by Cesar Chavez and Ilan Stavans (editor)

Use the "1968: 50th Anniversarylibrary calendar filter to see all commemoration events and visit the 1968 page on the website for updates on community partnerships and '68-related collections.

    This event is free and open to the public, but registration is requested.

  • This is the initial announcement for the 9th annual Small Telescope Workshop, to be held on January 29-30, 2019 at the Integrity Applications (IAI) facility in Chantilly VA. As in previous years, the workshop will be held at the TS/SCI/NF level, with security sponsorship provided by AFRL, USNO, and NASA.

    Feel free to share this message with others in your organization. 

    The STW is a classified venue for discussion of the role of small (typically <~1 meter) telescopes for space situational awareness. Representative topics of interest include:
     -Operation of small telescopes and/or telescope networks

    -Foreign small telescope systems
    -Non-traditional or advanced concepts to improve SSA collection

    -Concepts or examples involving the combination of small and larger telescopes
    -Ground, air, or space-based collection concepts and systems
    -Advanced processing architectures, algorithms, etc.

    -Policy issues related to the above topics

    Papers that address these or related topics are welcomed.  Anticipating a full agenda, preference will be given to classified papers vs papers that can be presented in open forums.

    At this time, please take the following actions:
    *         Block the dates on your calendar;
    *         If not interested, let me know if you want to be removed from future messages;
    *         Register and send visit requests per the instructions below;
    *         Let me know if you would like to present a paper, and provide me an unclassified working title (as a placeholder at this time, just to help develop the agenda).

    The key dates are as follows:
    *         September 10: attendee registration opens via web-based Eventbrite. You can use credit cards, print a receipt for reimbursement, etc. (Note-the ticket provided by Eventbrite is not needed for attendance).
    In addition to the Eventbrite registration, you must separately submit your visit request. Instructions are provided below. Please do not wait until the last minute.
    *         December 1: submission closes for authors to provide me intent to present (note I anticipate a robust submission of papers, so early submission is recommended). Procedure: send me an unclassified title and brief (1 paragraph) abstract. Be sure to include your name, affiliation, and phone number/email. Selected presenters will be notified on/about 1 December. Presenters should prepare to submit your briefing materials during the month of December, but NLT January 4 via classified email to Jim Shell (shelljame@nro.ic.gov).
    *         January 22- last date for cancellation and refund of registration fees. If cancellation/refund is requested prior to this date, follow refund instructions on the Eventbrite webpage.
    *         January 29-30: Small Telescope Workshop, Chantilly VA.
    *         February 1- anticipated posting of presentations on Intellipedia site.

    For 2019, the registration fee is $100 (Government employee) or $300 (contractors, SETA, academia, FFRDC). This fee offsets the expenses (Eventbrite fees, venue expenses, etc) and effort required to organize and operate the workshop.

    In addition, as an experiment to encourage the next generation of SSA experts, I have added a third registration category (“early career”). For each agency/company that attends the workshop, they can register one individual at a reduced rate. Qualifications are: active security clearance to attend; under 30 years of age; agreement that the individual will be “mentored and networked” through the workshop by their agency/company. This will be on the honor system, and is an attempt on my part to encourage attendance by the “next generation” of our community.

    Note to presenters: 
    1)      If you anticipate a file size that will be too large to email (videos, etc), contact Jim Shell (jim@novarum-tech.com) in advance to make alternate arrangements.
    2)      Hand carry of classified or unclassified presentations is NOT a viable option.
    3)     Submission of your presentation implies acceptance for us to post it on the intellipedia site that documents the proceedings. Please be sure security markings are correct, and there are no proprietary markings.

    As a reminder, past presentations are posted on intelink at: https://intellipedia.intelink.ic.gov/wiki/SSA_Innovation:_Telescopes <https://intellipedia.intelink.ic.gov/wiki/SSA_Innovation:_Telescopes>
