NASA's Exploration Enterprise Workshop

Keith’s note: The following was distirbuted inside NASA by Brett Silcox, Legislative & Industrial Affairs Specialist: “All: In conjunction with AIAA, NASA will host an Exploration Enterprise Workshop on May 25-26, 2010 at the Moody Gardens Hotel and Convention Center in Galveston, Texas. The workshop will bring together a broad community of stakeholders from industry, academia, and the Federal Government to engage in discussions related to strategy building, development, and the implementation of the new plans for human and robotic exploration in space.
The workshop will focus on the President’s FY11 budget request for NASA Exploration. The Agency has completed the initial phase of planning for the new technology and robotic programs and will provide insight into progress to date. The objectives of the workshop are to:
– Convey progress in planning toward the new programs
– Discuss NASA Center proposed Program assignments
– Solicit feedback, ideas and suggestions from interested parties
– Prepare for the next steps once the new programs are implemented
I will be sending out additional information as it becomes available.

This event is less than 3 weeks away. NASA expects hundreds of people to show up – but they have not even formally announced it yet. This event ends (in Texas) on 26 May. The next day the ISDC starts in Chicago, Illinois. Charlie Bolden and Lori Garver will be speaking there. Many people already have travel plans made for ISDC so they’ll skip this Texas event – or they’ll have to decide between one or the other. It baffles me why NASA never stops and thinks before they do things like this.
