    International Cooperation in Space: ISS 20
    Nov. 30 | 6 p.m. CT

    This month we (Space Center Houston) are celebrating 20 years of continuous human habitation aboard the International Space Station (ISS). In our November Thought Leader Series, presented by The University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB), a panel of astronauts will discuss how they lived, worked and collaborated aboard the floating laboratory.

    NASA astronaut Dr. Ellen Ochoa, Canadian Space Agency (CSA) astronaut Colonel Jeremy Hansen, and European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Captain Samantha Cristoforetti will share their space station experiences from a scientific and cultural perspective.

    During this unique time, we are still passionate about sharing science and space exploration with our community. To continue our commitment to bring dynamic science learning experiences to the public, please join the November Thought Leader Series virtually at 6 p.m. CT Nov. 30.

    Be part of the presentation by submitting your questions to questions@spacestation.org by 12 p.m. CT Nov. 19.

    The presentation will be available on the Space Center Houston webpage and their YouTube channel.

    NAL members can't get onsite but you can pick up up your Alumni Badge in building 110 during regular office hours.  Please wait at least 5 business days after receiving notification from NAL that your membership has been processed before going to JSC to pick it up.

    If you have an interest in easily helping preserve the JSC historical collection within the UHCL Archive, here is your opportunity.  On June 22nd NAL representatives (Cyndi Draughon, Sylvia Stottlemeyer, Denny Holt and Greg Blackburn) presented UHCL with a check for $2,200 outside the Alfred R Neumann Library to establish and kick off fund raising for a NAL sponsored endowment to support the JSC Collection via student internships. UHCL Associate Director of Development for University Advancement Richard Zalesak, JSC onsite Archivist Mark Scroggins, and Neumann Library Executive Director Dr. Vivienne McClendon were also in attendance. The full UHCL press release can be found at

    https://blog.uhcl.edu/news/uhcl-nasa-alumni-league-launch-human-space-flight-archive-internship-endowment.

    The goal of our endowment is to raise a minimum of $25,000 in five years which would then be used to forever pay for a student intern(s) to work alongside the UHCL Archivists to formally support the growing JSC Collection. This 2020 NAL gift also included monies to pay for a student intern for the Fall and Spring semesters in parallel to the endowment fund raising activity.  This intern will augment NAL volunteers that are already helping the UHCL Archive given their limited resources and the high volume of donations of NASA related information.

    If you would like to be part of this unique opportunity, you can give directly to the endowment via the Give to UHCL website at

    https://giving.uh.edu/uhcl/

    Once there just scroll down and click on “Search Funds” which is to the right of “Top Funds” and then type NASA in the “Search for a Designation” box and you will see our endowment pop up.  Click on the endowment name and then follow the instructions for giving.  Every dollar counts!

    If you have any questions regarding this NAL activity please do not hesitate to contact Greg Blackburn at greg.c.blackburn@gmail.com.

    Based on CDC guidelines and the current status of the coronavirus in TX, JSC is not allowing NAL members onsite.

    Accordingly, please be advised that NAL is not planning to hold any in person Social/Dinners and First Thursday gatherings at this time.  We're hoping things will change for December or January..
