The webcast of the open session of the planetary science decadal resumes at 1:30 EDT
At the Keck Building at National Academies in DC next week, the Planetary Sciences decadal survey gets underway. Here is the final agenda in PDF form. There are open sessions on Monday and Tuesday, which the public can attend. You can also see the decadal in the current projects system at the Academies.
Open sessions at Academies events such as these occur when people from outside the committee are presenting to the committee. In this case, the decadal panel will be hearing from the agencies (NASA, NSF) as well as from OMB and staff from Congress.
Update There will be a webcast of the open session available as well. Open session begins at 11:30 EDT
I’m a bit late to covering this, but the Planetary decadal is beginning to get underway. Steven Squyres of Cornell University has been named the chair, and Larry Soderblom of the U.S. Geological Survey is the vice-chair.
You can view the full committee membership at the Planetary Science Decadal Survey site and it’s also listed in the current projects system. Also at the web site is a PDF copy of the presentation given in March in Houston at the Lunar and Planetary science conference.
