DSES Quarterly Board Meeting - March 16th @ 2pm

posted Mar 7, 2013, 9:41 AM by Simon Shupp   [ updated Mar 7, 2013, 9:42 AM ]
The next Quarterly Board Meeting of the Deep Space Exploration Society
will be held at the Sommers Bausch Observatory, University of Colorado
Boulder main campus, commencing at 2:00PM 16 March, 2013 MT.

If there are items for the Agenda, please forward to the presiding
officer: Robert Slate (ds...@rslate.com) or to me,
wayne...@dses.org.

In addition to the business meeting, there will be a tour of the
optical observatory. Tentatively we have Adam Ginsberg, a PhD candidate
at CU talking about small dish radio astronomy and giving a
presentation of the radio astronomy work he and collaborators have
been publishing lately.

We have also tentatively scheduled Dr. Xinlin Li, Professor and PI for
the Colorado Student Space Weather Experiment (CSSWE) an NSF-funded 3U
CubeSat (30×10×10 cm) housing an energetic particle telescope. Dr Li
will present their results to date and to have a conversation with us from
the design to operations of their project. This portion of the meeting
will explore details related to our discussions with Cornell and
our contributing telemetry to their CubeSat effort.

The CSSWE details may be found at:

Directions to the Observatory are relatively simple:

The missile address is : 40.0036, -105.2629

From Denver into Boulder along HY 36 -- the Boulder Turnpike, you will
exit onto Baseline, and turn to the left (West). At the light at
Broadway and Baseline (a few blocks to the West), you will turn
to the Right (North). Go to the first light -- Regent Drive. Turn
to the Right (East) and go to the first intersection. This is
Kitterdge Loop. Turn South on the first part of the loop, go one
block then take the first Left. The big domed building is Fiske
Planetarium. Sommers Bausch is under the smaller dome immediately
East of the Planetarium. The parking lot is just East of the
observatory.

On Campus:

As you drive North on Kitterdge Loop you will notice a driveway up the
hill to the left (ENE) immediately in front of the steps leading up to
the Observatory. Park in Lot 119 and pay attention to the signs. Lot
119 is really two rows of parking closest to the tall building along
the West edge of that large lot.
