CASIS Is Clueless

Keith’s note: Below is a Twitter exchange this evening – obviously CASIS really has no idea what the ISS has done since it started to operate. They are clearly unaware of the biweekly NASA Spaceline Current Awareness which has been produced by the agency for well over a decade. Alas, no one at NASA knows how to post it online since they took the website offline years ago. Yet the report is still produced faithfully every 2 weeks – and it does a stellar job at chronicling what NASA research is done on the ISS and where it is published. Here’s our archive back to 1999.
@AstroAllie5: @ISS_Research Hi! Do you have a link to list/directory/catalog of all science ever done in space?
@ISS_Research: @AstroAllie5 That might not exist! Here’s a start, all @ISS_Research: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/research/experiments_category/index.html
@NASAWatch: .@ISS_Research why is @ISS_CASIS incapable of posting this #NASA generated report on current ISS research? https://spaceref.com/news/viewsr.html?pid=44418 #inept
@AstroAllie5: @ISS_CASIS @NASAWatch I’m trying to understand your meaning. What happened? Where did u get that list? Y can’t they do it?
@NASAwatch: @AstroAllie5 @ISS_CASIS can’t do this because they have no idea what part of #NASA generated this report every 2 wks for more than 10 yrs
@AstroAllie5: @NASAWatch @ISS_CASIS Wow. I did ask CASIS before today and was told it’s not their job. That I should ask ISS Office. Just seems wrong.
