We look forward to seeing you for our next Congressional Space Studies Series meeting on Friday, June 29 from 10:00am-12:00pm in Rayburn 2325. This will be our sixth session and will focus on the role of the National Academies and the interactions between
it, NASA and the Congress. We are very pleased to have Dr. Michael Moloney as our special guest speaker for this session. Dr. Moloney is the CEO of the American Institute of Physics and former Director for Space and Aeronautics at the Space Studies Board
(SSB) and the Aeronautics and Space Engineering Board (ASEB) of the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
Dr. Moloney has served as a study director at the National Materials Advisory Board; the Board on Manufacturing and Engineering Design; the Center for Economic, Governance, and International Studies; and the Board on Physics and Astronomy. The American Astronomical
Society awarded Moloney a special citation in 2011 for his leadership on the decadal survey “New Worlds, New Horizons in Astronomy and Astrophysics.” At the Academies, Moloney served as study director or senior staff on about 100 reports on subjects as varied
as quantum physics, nanotechnology, cosmology, the nation’s helium reserves, counterfeit currency, corrosion science and nuclear fusion. He was senior or lead staff on the physics decadal surveys on atomic, molecular, and optical science, condensed matter
and materials physics, and plasma physics. At the SSB and ASEB he oversaw decadal surveys in astronomy and astrophysics, planetary sciences, Earth science and applications from space, solar and space physics, and microgravity sciences.
As always, if you have already registered for the Congressional Space Studies Series there is no need to RSVP for this session, but any other new attendees should register with me before attending on June 29.
Please don’t hesitate contact me anytime with questions or for additional information on this series or the Coalition for Deep Space Exploration.
