Johnson Space Center Astronomical Society Meeting
Join us this Friday, November 9th, 7:30 pm, when Dr. Conrad Wells of JSC will share with us his experience "Testing the James Webb Space Telescope in Chamber A at JSC: Lessons Learned at 20 Kelvin, Including How to Survive Harvey!" Dr. Wells earned his PhD in Optical Engineering from the University of Arizona and now serves as the Deputy Optical Test Director for the cryogenic test of the JWST. This presentation is sure to be enlightening!
Our agenda also includes the short talks: "Astro Oddities", "D-I-Y Astronomy", "Member's Minutes", and STAR Time: a chance were you can "Show, Tell, Ask or Respond" to the group. BTW...after-meeting discussions continue at Mod Pizza.
JSCAS is open to anyone who wants to learn about astronomy and membership is FREE! (It's the best offer money can't buy!) After joining, you'll have access to our amazing Astronomy DVD Library with 100's of choices to learn from (from Astronomy Magazine, NASA, The Great Courses, Discovery Channel, etc.). Our meetings are held on the 2nd Friday of each month at 7:30 pm in the lecture hall of the USRA Bldg. (3600 Bay Area Blvd. at Middlebrook Dr., aka The Lunar & Planetary Institute) For more info, see our website at jscas.net
Note to all those who have borrowed DVDs from the JSCAS Media Library: Please return your borrowed DVDs before the meeting or during the break. Yes, you can check them out again!
