ISU-DC Space Cafe With Me, February 11, 2014


Launius 9-2006Angela Peura, DC Representative of the ISU-USA Alumni Association, has asked me to participate in the next Space Café on February 11, 2014, at 7:00 pm. This is organized by the Washington, D.C., chapter of the International Space University (ISU) alumni association. The Space Café will be held at The Science Club, 1136 19th Street, N.W., Washington, DC.

These regular events bring together various communities, including space policy analysts, , ISU alumni, the space community, and the interested public in a casual forum that encourages interaction and discussion. In addition to the event on Tuesday, February 11, other Space Cafe take places on the second Tuesday of every month and begin at 7 pm. The web site for Science Club, 1136 19th Street, NW, Washington, DC, is:  http://www.ScienceClubDC.com/.

I will speak on the topic of “Compelling Rationales for Human Spaceflight.” I can only find five reasons to fly in space, and only two of those require humans…are those compelling?

Please join us on Tuesday, February 11th. There’s no need to RSVP, but if you have questions or suggestions for future speakers, please feel free to contact Angela Peura at angela.peura@gmail.com.

I hope to see you there!
