Leonard Nimoy

Astronaut Salutes Leonard Nimoy From Orbit

"International Space Station astronaut Terry Virts (@AstroTerry) tweeted this image of a Vulcan hand salute from orbit as a tribute to actor Leonard Nimoy, who died on Friday, Feb. 27, 2015."

Statement by NASA Admimistrator Bolden on the Passing of Leonard Nimoy

"Leonard Nimoy was an inspiration to multiple generations of engineers, scientists, astronauts, and other space explorers. As Mr. Spock, he made science and technology important to the story, while never failing to show, by example, that it is the people around us who matter most. NASA was fortunate to have him as a friend and a colleague."

Statement by the President on the Passing of Leonard Nimoy

"I loved Spock. In 2007, I had the chance to meet Leonard in person. It was only logical to greet him with the Vulcan salute, the universal sign for "Live long and prosper." And after 83 years on this planet - and on his visits to many others - it's clear Leonard Nimoy did just that."

Space Groups Planning New and Revived Advocacy Activities, Space News

"In a speech at the SpaceVision 2014 conference in November in Durham, North Carolina, Tumlinson indicated that participants in the event would be expected to come to a consensus on steps that need to be taken to address those knowledge gaps. That is going to be pushed out into the world as an agreement between people in our community, he said."

"Despite the proximity of the Legislative Blitz to March Storm, and some overlap in participation NSS is supporting both events both Miller and Zucker said there were no plans to coordinate the two events or even combine them. Miller argued that March Storm thrived in the past on developing its own specific, coherent agenda and set of legislative priorities. "We've been very successful with that approach," he said. "March Storm is kind of unique."

Keith's note: Tumlinson ignores the remaining (substantial) portion of the space advocacy community for his summit while Miller and Zucker and their organizations ignore each other. Yea, this is what you need to do so as to start working together.

Keith's note: Have a look at this conference at the International Conference - Space Technologies: Present and Future. It is being held in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine - the part of the country where all the fighting is going on. Rebellions and invasions aside, conference sponsorships are still available. The Heinlein Prize/Trust is a sponsor. Curiously they are also a sponsor of the upcoming (and slightly less mysterious) Pioneering Space National Summit in Washington next week.
