American Astronautical Society Hosts 1st Annual ISS R&D Conference
The American Astronautical Society along with NASA and the Center for Advancement of Science in Space are presenting the 1st Annual International Space Station (ISS) Research and Development Conference in Denver, Colorado from June 27 to 29. The conference will include parallel technical sessions and a separate workshop designed to update scientists on ISS research results and technological developments to explore how these accomplishments can be used to develop new ideas for experiments on the ISS. One of the highlights of the conference will be a luncheon on June 27 with guest speaker Astronaut E. Michael Fincke. Fincke was a crew member on ISS Expeditions 9 and 18 and flew on the final flight of Space Shuttle Endeavour. Top science and technology results will be presented from a wide range of studies, including microgravity research into the mechanisms and treatment of infectious diseases, novel fluid management systems aboard spacecraft and advanced diagnostic ultrasound in microgravity. Opportunities for exploration beyond Earth orbit include in-space robotic refueling and repair, optical communications, space-based, on-demand fabrication of metallic parts and environmental control and life support systems.
