Chandler Science Café, “NASA’s Asteroid Initiative: Go or No Go?” February 4, 2015

Please join us Wednesday, February 4, 2015, 7 pm, Gangplank, 260 S. Arizona Ave., Chandler, AZ 85224, for the Chandler Science Café at Hack Night, “NASA’s Asteroid Initiative: Go or No Go?”

NASA’s Asteroid Initiative seeks to combine Near Earth Object collision mitigation, commercial exploitation of asteroids and the development of Earth-to-Mars technology in one initiative. Are we biting off more than we can chew?

 

Our discussion will be led by Garrick Williams, Young Professionals chair for the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) as well as the External Chair for the Orbital Early Career Network (OECN) at Orbital Sciences in Chandler. “We may drift a bit to talk about the overall roadmap for the SLS/commercial crew/later beyond earth orbit proposals,” said Williams. Other guests include representatives from National Space Society.

Science Cafés are live—and lively—events that take place in casual settings, are open to everyone, and feature an engaging conversation with a scientist about a particular topic. Chandler Science Cafe, first Wednesday of the month, is presented in association with the Arizona SciTech Festival, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), Orbital Early Career Network and Gangplank Labs Initiative.

Free, open to the public, light refreshments, all welcome.
