NASA Science Web Federation Workshop

"Of key interest are the plans for the first annual NASA Science Web Federation Workshop November 13th-16th, 2007, at Ames Research Center. The intent is for this workshop to focus on NASA application of web technology. You may want to participate as an observer or share your solution to a particular challenge."

"NASA has suffered from a public credibility crisis in recent years due to perceived incompetence, a failed mission to Mars, the damaged and dormant Hubble telescope, and its inability to procure a long enough USB cable to reach all the way over to engineer William Chen's cubicle.

NASA LaRC Internal Memo: CLOSED: Outreach Resource Center

"Effective Sept. 28, 2007, the Outreach Resource Center (ORC) in Bdg. 1213, Rm. 139, was permanently closed. Due to budget constraints, the ORC is no longer available for walk-in customers or requests for hard-copy public information materials."

NASA Langley to Open to Public for One Day

"Come see some of NASA Langley's latest breakthroughs for yourself Saturday, October 27, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Help stimulate your child's imagination with a look at real-life space-age discoveries that may one day be part of everyday life. Enjoy a rare opportunity to step back in time and view where astronauts learned to land on the moon."

Editor's note: This sends a confusing message. On one hand LaRC opens itself up to the public - on the other hand it closes itself off from them.
