Space Workshop October 12 in Cocoa Beach

Got the government shutdown blues? Want to channel your furlough frustrations into something positive?

Attend the Florida Space Development Council's Southeast Regional Workshop this Saturday October 12 at the Hilton Cocoa Beach Oceanfront.

The FSDC is a chapter of the National Space Society.

Originally this was going to be an all-day event with morning workshops, but those were cancelled due to the government shutdown as NASA speakers are prohibited from attending. The afternoon events, however, are still on. According to an FSDC release:

  • Hear presentations from southeast NSS chapters.
  • Discuss the purpose of NSS chapters, success stories, and lessons learned.
  • Hear from NSS leaders about the organization, purpose, and future of the Society.
  • As members, express your views on NSS and ask questions of its leadership.
  • Enjoy keynote speaker Jim Kennedy, former NASA KSC Center Director.
  • Talk about your favorite topic and hear from others during our mini SpaceUp.
  • Light food will be provided but please plan to provide your own lunch.
