Personnel News: April 2019 Archives

Keith's 12:32 PM note: I sent the following request to NASA HQ and KSC PAO:

"K. Scott Piel @spiel2001 who claims to be a "Software Engineer / TOSC @ NASA/KSC EGS/LCS - Amateur Photographer" refers to a new KSC policy that prohibits employees from any photography while on the job.

1. Has NASA KSC implemented a new policy wherein, according to Piel "employees are no longer permitted to photograph or share images from *any* operations cat KSC without authorization. Regardless of source. Photographing, or sharing images, from operations is grounds for termination." (yes/no)?
2. If NASA KSC has implemented a new policy with regard to photography does it apply to contractor personnel only, NASA civil servants only, or both?
3. Can you provide me with a copy of the current NASA KSC policy with regard to photography - on-site - by KSC employees?"

Keith's 1:14 PM update: NASA replied (very quickly BTW): "NASA does not have a new photo policy. All employees are required to follow federal and contractual requirements, which prevent the sharing of imagery that is export controlled and/or proprietary. I will circle back to you with the policy shortly."

Keith's 1:30 PM update: "As promised, I am including the language below from the Kennedy NASA Procedural Requirement that outlines KSC's photography policy."

"10.4 KSC Photography Policy

Jerrie Cobb

Geraldyn "Jerrie" M. Cobb, first woman to pass astronaut testing in 1961 passes away at 88.

"After living sixty-six adventure filled years as a pilot and advocate for female pilots, and sharing over fifty years of her life with the indigenous Indian tribes of the Amazon, Jerrie's humble smile and sky-blue eyes live on in our hearts. It is fitting that Jerrie was born in, and would leave us in, Woman's History Month. Jerrie Cobb passed away peacefully on March 18, 2019 in Florida. Whenever we look to the heavens, we will see those sky-blue eyes and be reminded of her humble smile, deep compassion and steely determination."
