Greetings from Puerto Rico!
Kris Kimel, Kentucky Space advisors Dr. Jim Lumpp, Dr. Janet Lumpp, Dr. Karen Hackney and Kentucky Space students David Jones and I are currently in San Juan, Puerto Rico for the 2009 NASA Space Grant Southeast Regional Meeting. Last evening David and I presented two posters, one on KySat-1, and another on the Development of the Testing Facilities used to test KySat-1. Today Tyler will be giving a presentation on the current and past activities of the Kentucky Space Consortium.
As seen in different films such as Contact and 007 Golden Eye, we also got a chance to tour the Arecibo Observatory, which was a big thrill.This meeting is a place where all of the different space grant consortiums are gathered to discuss strategic plans moving forward with 2009.
Stay tuned for pictures of the team touring the observatory and attending the conference.
