Museum Alliance Webcast — The Spaceport of the Future: NASA’s Journey to Mars Begins Here
Imagine a spaceport of the future, where a variety of space vehicles are preparing for launch or departing Earth on missions to expand humanity’s reach into space. At NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the Ground Systems Development and Operations program is propelling this vision forward. The GSDO team is leading the center’s transformation from a historically government-only launch complex to a spaceport bustling with activity involving government and commercial vehicles alike.
NASA’s Digital Learning Network and the GSDO team at Kennedy Space Center invite you to participate in an interactive webcast on April 16, 2015, at 1 p.m. EDT. The webcast will feature Jeremy Parsons, the branch chief of the Operations Integration office within the GSDO program at Kennedy Space Center. Parsons is responsible for overseeing a diverse team that performs operations management and analysis of Kennedy’s human exploration activities.
Parsons will webcast live from the Digital Learning Network studio at Kennedy Space Center. He will share information on America’s new spaceport and take questions from webcast viewers from around the country.
You may view the webcast as an individual at your personal computer or set up audio visual equipment at your institution for a large group to participate. To view the webcast, visit http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nasa-dlinfo.
Questions for Parsons may be submitted before and during the event by email at email@example.com. Questions also may be submitted during the event via twitter to @NASADLN.
After the webcast, presentation materials will be posted on the Museum Alliance member site at https://informal.jpl.nasa.gov/museum/Conversations.
