    Evening All,

    We have a busy couple of weeks coming up for the Space Coast:

    Happy Hour

    Looking for a way to unwind midway through your week? Why not join us for the Monthly AIAA Cape Canaveral Happy Hour located at Carib Brewery USA on Wednesday, Oct 18th. Due to popular demand, we've adjusted the start time of the event from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM. As always, drinks are "buy-one-get-one" and the pizza is free!

    Small Satellite Education Conference

    On Oct 28th and 29th, we will be hosting the 2nd annual Small Satellite Education Conference and as we got closer to the event, we'd like to start advertising our exhibitors and presenters. For this announcement, we are please to announce that NASA's Launch Services Program will be supporting our conference as an exhibitor! As an attendee you will get a unique opportunity to directly discuss and learn with one of the most exciting program's at NASA.

    LSP Background:
    NASA's Launch Services Program (LSP) is responsible for launching rockets delivering spacecraft that observe the Earth, visit other planets and explore the universe – from weather satellites to telescopes to Mars rovers and more.
    LSP functions as a broker, matching spacecraft with the best-suited rockets, managing the launch process, providing support from pre-mission planning to post-launch. LSP helps implement NASA's policy of a mixed-fleet launch strategy, which uses both existing and emerging domestic launch capabilities to assure access to space.

    James Webb Space Telescope Dinner Event

    With the Small Satellite Education Conference only a few weeks away, we are honored to announce a dinner event on Oct 28th at the Sands Space History Center in Cape Canaveral, FL. This event will feature Northrop Grumman Corporation's Dr. Jonathan W. Arenberg, Chief Engineer for the NASA's James Webb Space Telescope!
    Speaker Background:
    Discover the furthermost reaches of the universe as revealed by the James Webb Space Telescope, the most powerful space telescope ever built.
