Next Generation Lunar Scientists and Engineers

June 24, 2009

The following is an announcement from Lora Bleacher and Noah Petro on behalf of the Next Generation Lunar Scientists and Engineers.

Are you a current student (undergraduate or graduate) interested in the future of lunar science and engineering?  Want to connect with other like-minded individuals?   Then attend the free Next Generation Lunar Scientists and Engineers (NGLSE) workshop!  The workshop will be held at NASA Ames on Monday, July 20 (the day before the NASA Lunar Science Forum starts and also the 40th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing!) from noon-5pm.  Lunch will be provided.  The workshop will precede the opening reception for the Forum.

The workshop agenda will include time for you to get to know one another and to hear from leaders in the lunar community.  It is our hope that the workshop will provide a forum for you to:

  • Interact and collaborate with one another now and in the future;
  • Interact and collaborate with invited speakers and attendees from NLSI and the greater lunar community;
  • Give feedback to NASA and the science community on your activities and needs;
  • Learn about lunar education and public outreach materials and programs that you can share with your local communities and other students.

In addition, we plan to provide time for those of you who are interested to present and receive feedback on your research from your peers by practicing delivering your poster presentation in typical poster session fashion (or alternately through an oral presentation of your results).

Space is limited on a first-come, first-served basis.  Please respond to this email to indicate your attendance by COB Monday, June 29.  Also, let us know if you would like to practice your poster presentation at the workshop as well.

We’re looking forward to seeing you in July!

Lora Bleacher ( and Noah Petro (

    Thanks for such forward thinking! I left a farm in NW Fl. in 1947 after assisting my Dad by plowing an OX and joined the Air Force to get an education. 17 years later I advanced to Major and an MBA + and was Guidance Officer for the Gemini program at Cape Kennedy. In other words “the country afforded me the opportunity to go from “guiding an ox to guiding Gemini”. I’m 80 now but I have just been invited to FSU to give a power point on my idea for a new degree stressing innovative thinking. Go get’m!
