The following events may be of interest in the week ahead. The House and Senate both are in session.
During the Week
This week is chock full of congressional hearings on space activities at NASA, DOD, NOAA, and USGS (which operates the Landsat satellites), not to mention a number of NASA Advisory Council (NAC) committee meetings leading up to the full NAC meeting on Thursday and Friday. Not sure how much the hearings on NOAA and USGS will focus on space activities since their responsibilities are quite varied, but something of interest may be said. Separately, NASA is sponsoring a day-long seminar on Thursday at George Washington University in connection with Women's History Month on "Woman, Innovation and Aerospace."
Rather than listing these events day-by-day as we usually do, this week they are grouped into categories for those of you interested primarily in the NAC meetings, the congressional hearings, or the other events. A day-by-day listing is available on our "Events of Interest" list and on the calendar on our website as always.
