Update, March 9, 2:30 pm ET:  The final, final agenda is here.

Update, March 9, 10:20 am ET:  NASA has provided us with an agenda, which indicates the meeting began at 8:30 am ET, but this notice is posted on the WebEx page saying it starts at 10:30 am ET.


Update, March 9, 8:15 am ET:  The committee’s website still does not have any information posted about this meeting other than the Federal Register notice.  The instructions therein to listen to the meeting via Webex work.  Posted there is this notice.

So the meeting now is two days instead of three, and virtual instead of in-person.  We still have not been able to find an agenda.
