ARISS-International Meeting Attendees:
The ARISS-US team had a meeting with NASA yesterday on the November ARISS-I
meeting and our tour plans. We were informed that our ARISS tour time,
originally planned for Monday November 14th in the afternoon, will change.
We are now scheduled from 8:30 am-11:30 am on Monday November 14.
NASA stated that they are overwhelmed by the substantial influx of tour
requests on Monday. This includes the SpaceCom conference, the ARISS-I
meeting and the normal tour groups from Space Center Houston. An estimated
2,000 attendees will be coming to the SpaceCom conference (industry,
academia, and government space leaders) that will be held the same time as
our ARISS-I meeting in Houston. Unfortunately, this will limit tour guides
and tour availability in the times they can work with our group-thus the
need for the tour time change.
We apologize for this, but I think you can understand this is unavoidable.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please contact me
directly at my ka3hdo at amsat.org <mailto:ka3hdo at amsat.org> e-mail.
