Is it possible to eliminate our risk of being blind-sided by an asteroid, and can the the risks and potential of asteroids play off each other to justify action?

NewSpace 2009: Flags and Footprints – or the New Frontier? July 18–20, 2009 Mountain View, CA Tetra Wine Tetra-a harmonious fusion of four. Our 2006 Tetra Red Wine is a classic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet franc and Petit Verdot. Each lot was individually harvested from exceptional vineyards in the cooler southern part of the Napa Valley, and then vinified separately in order to fully capture and showcase the essence of the fruit sources. Fermentation variables included cold soak (to increase extractability of color and tannin), inclusion of whole berries (to amplify primary fruit), fermentation temperature, cap management, and extended maceration (to soften tannins and stabilize color). Following fermentation, the free run was racked to small French oak barrels (75% new), where the wines underwent malolactic conversion. Wines were aged for 18 months in barrel, and then the final blend was painstakingly crafted through many sessions of trial-and-error tastings, finally honing in on the best-of-the-best. The wine was bottled without fining or filtration to maximize flavors and textures.

Thomas Gangale will be signing his new book, “The Development of Outer Space: Sovereignty and Property Rights in International Space Law”. VirtuePlay Lunar Explorer Some day, you will be able to book a trip to the Moon. Until then, we bring the Moon to you. The VirtuePlay Lunar Explorer is a realistic interactive visual representation of the Moon using actual data collected by NASA spacecraft and earthbound telescopes. It uses real-time 3D graphics techniques to provide an immersive virtual environment for the user to explore our nearest neighbor in a variety of ways - at a distance, in orbit, or walking on the lunar surface.

Speaker Biographical Information Fred Bourgeois Fred J. Bourgeois, III has been dreaming and making plans to pursue space exploration since he was two. Growing up in a “NASA family” in Huntsville, Alabama, where he attended Virgil I. “Gus” Grissom High School probably had a lot to do with it. Bourgeois was early recognized for his mathematical talents, and went on to receive his BSCS degree from Tulane University’s School of Engineering. After attending the Tulane Graduate School, he began a career in academia teaching Computer Science at the University of Minnesota, and later for Eaton Corporation’s Information Management Systems Division, and several University extension programs. Bourgeois’ teaching for Eaton included support for clients utilizing satellite systems and networks, and command, control, and communications programs. Bourgeois next worked as a contractor on classified programs at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Weary of the classified world, his next endeavour brought him to Santa Cruz, California, where he initially worked for MetaWare Incorporated as a Senior Compiler Developer, and then into his own software development and consulting business, FREDNET. Now operating for more than 16 years, the company was renamed Applios Inc. (Applied Open Source Technology) in 1999 and continues to provide Software Development, Systems Engineering, Networking, and Information Security solutions today. Applios’ current and former clients include Lockheed Martin, NEC, AMD, Transmeta, Resilience, Sun, SJSU, many Silicon Valley startup companies, and a number of local, regional, and national Internet Service Providers. During May 1989, while a flight surgeon assigned to the 48th Tactical Hospital, United Kingdom, Dr. Cagle volunteered to serve as the Air Force Medical Liaison Officer for the STS-30 Atlantis Shuttle Mission to test the Magellan Spacecraft. She was assigned to the Trans Atlantic (TAL) Landing site at Banjul, West Africa, to provide emergency rescue and evacuation of the shuttle crew should it have been required. Dr. Cagle has contributed on-going data to the Longitudinal Study on Astronaut Health, and served as a consultant for space telemedicine. She was a member of the NASA Working Group and traveled to Russia to establish international medical standards and procedures for astronauts. She also conducted health screenings of Mir-18 consultants from the Russian Federation. Selected by NASA in April 1996, Dr. Cagle reported to the Johnson Space Center in August 1996. She completed two years of training and evaluation, and is qualified for flight assignment as a mission specialist. Initially assigned to the Astronaut Office Operations Planning Branch, supporting Shuttle and Space Station, followed by a special assignment to NASA Ames Research Center. Dr. Cagle is currently assigned as the lead ARC Astronaut Science Liaison and Strategic Relationships Manager for Google and other Silicon Valley Programmatic Partnerships. Dr. Cagles groundbreaking work is preserving historic NASA space legacy data while, simultaneously, galvanizing NASAs lead in global mapping, sustainable energies, green initiatives, and disaster preparedness. Robert Call represents Pumpkin Inc., manufacturers of the popular CubeSat Kit, a standardized chassis and electronics platform for building picosatellites. Originally developed in 2000 while assisting students at Stanford University and Santa Clara University on how to use their Salvo RTOS embedded software on microcontrollers destined for microsatellite missions, the project eventually developed into a comprehensive, off-theshelf CubeSat kit. The first three production CubeStat Kits were delivered to the first commercial customer in Q4 2003, as the CubeSat Kit has evolved into a very powerful and versatile design that meets the needs of a wide range of picosatellite missions.
