NASA Hosting Human Space Exploration Workshop
“NASA will host a three-day Human Space Exploration Community Workshop in San Diego starting on Monday, Nov. 14. The agency will introduce the International Space Exploration Coordination Group’s Global Exploration Roadmap during the event. … Due to space limitations, reporters are invited to watch the workshop via webcast and submit questions via email. For details, visit: http://www.nasa.gov/exploration/about/isecg/ger-workshop.html
Keith’s note: This meeting is being held at the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego an immense hotel which brags about having “More than 125,000 square feet of flexible function space” and the “Largest ballroom in San Diego.”. And yet NASA cannot find a way to fit in – oh a dozen or so media? This is just nonsense. NASA does not want media to interfere with the people at this event – so they simply ban them from being present physically and then impose a filter on what they can/cannot ask and who they will be allowed to question. So much for transparency and openness.
