NASA Scientists to Share Ideas at SETIcon Gathering

"NASA scientists will join space experts, celebrities and science fiction writers to discuss science, entertainment and celebrate the 25th anniversary of the SETI Institute, Mountain View, Calif., at the SETIcon, Aug. 13-15, 2010 at The Hyatt Regency Santa Clara House, 5101 Great America Parkway, Santa Clara, Calif."

Keith's note: Alas, even though scientists engaged in SETI can scour the heavens, across many light years using exquisite, cutting-edge radio astronomy equipment, yet as far as I can tell, neither they (or ARC PAO) know how to webcast a conference to humans on Earth using a laptop and commonly available software. I did this from Everest Base Camp for crying out loud.

NASA Exploration Systems Directorate Commercial Crew Planning Status Forum

"NASA will present an overview of common themes captured from industry responses provided to NASA's Commercial Crew Initiative Request for Information (RFI) published on May 21, 2010. The forum will include a general discussion of how these common themes are being addressed by NASA; presentation of the insight/oversight philosophy; and a question and answer session. The event will be conducted on August 19, 2010, at NASA Headquarters, James E. Webb Auditorium, 300 E Street SW, Washington DC from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. NASA will broadcast the forum live on NASA TV and online via webcast. TV and Web viewers will have the opportunity to submit online questions and comments during the forum."

Keith's note: Ah great, one week advanced notice. But at least they will be webcasting and broadcasting the event - with online interaction as well.
