NASA Future In-Space Operations: A Primer on Public Policy, Why it's Important for Space Activities, and Current Hot Policy Topics

Now available is the November 2, 2016 NASA Future In-Space Operations (FISO) telecon material. The speakers was Brian Weeden (Secure World Foundation) who presented "A Primer on Public Policy, Why it's Important for Space Activities, and Current Hot Policy Topics."

Note: The audio file and presentation are online and available to download.

Marc's note: Some of the "Hot Topics" discussed included some of our favourites topics here at NASA Watch; The Asteroid Redirect Mission, go directly to Mars or back to the moon. Not much time was spent on these topics, but the presentation does provide a good overall introduction on how policy was shaped up to this point and what the next administration will face.

"NASA will host a teleconference at 2:30 p.m. EST Monday, Nov. 7, to preview several Earth science missions using small satellites heading into space, starting this year, to help us better understand our home planet."

"NASA has embraced the revolution in small spacecraft and satellites, from CubeSats you can hold in your hand to microsatellites the size of a small washing machine. The technology helps advance scientific and human exploration, reduces the cost of new missions, and expands access to space. The briefing will discuss NASA's overall program, technology development initiatives, and new Earth-observing missions that use individual and constellations of small satellites to study climate change, hurricanes and clouds."
