What’s Happening in Space Policy July 1-14, 2018

Here is SpacePolicyOnline.com’s list of space policy events for the next TWO weeks, July 1-14, 2018 and any insight we can offer about them.  The House and Senate are in recess this coming week and will return the week of July 9.

During the Weeks

On tap this week — hot dogs, hamburgers, and 4th of July fireworks!  That’s about it, except for a telecon meeting of NASA’s Planetary Science Advisory Committee tomorrow (Monday) from 1:00-5:00 pm ET.

Enjoy some R&R!!

We anticipate that work will begin again in earnest the week of July 9, but many schedules have not been announced yet.  What we know of so far is that AIAA will hold its annual Propulsion & Energy forum from July 9-11 in Cincinnati.  Janet Kavandi, former astronaut and current Director of NASA Glenn Research Center, will give a keynote address on July 9  at 8:00 am ET on “Enabling NASA Missions Today and Tomorrow.”  Kavandi is NASA Administrator Bridenstine’s choice to become his Deputy though the White House has not made any announcement along those lines.  Lots of interesting “Forum 360” sessions are scheduled including: SLS and Orion-Progress Toward Flight, Energy Solutions for Surviving the Lunar Night, Future of In-Space Propulsion, and Future of Hypersonics R&D.

In D.C., the DC chapter of the ISU Alumni Association will hold its next Space Cafe on July 10 with four NASA Goddard speakers on a panel to discuss NASA Citizen Science.  That’s at 7:00 pm ET at Cotton & Reed as usual.  The Mitchell Institute will hold the next in its Space Breakfast series on July 13 featuring Brig. Gen. Wayne Monteith, Commander of the Air Force’s 45th Space Wing, talking about “Commercial Launch and Ranges.”

That’s all we have right now.  Check back throughout the weeks for events we learn about later and add to our Calendar.
