"Hayn Crater" on the Moon
“Hayn Crater” on the Moon

When you think of craters (on the Moon, or elsewhere) do you consider them to be a hazard, or do you consider the benefits they could provide?  For insight on those options, attend the presentation Craters:  Dangers and Destinations.  National Space Society of North Texas (NSS-NT) President Cynthia Whisennand gives a presentation that answers that question, and more!

This NSS-NT meeting is on Sunday, March 12, 2017.  Following the presentation, NSS-NT President Cynthia Whisennand leads the business meeting discussion of the schedule for upcoming NSS-NT space events at planetariums, museums, conferences, and other locations throughout the Dallas-Ft. Worth (DFW) Metroplex, as well as ISDC 2017 (the 36th annual NSS conference) in St. Louis, MO, from May 25-29, 2017.

Additionally, entries are due for the NSS-NT Mission to Mars student contest by March 31, 2017 (some lucky student will win free registration to Space Camp!  The winners will be announced during the NSS-NT Yuri’s Night 2017 event at the Ft. Worth Museum of Science & History on Saturday, April 15, 2017.  Event details to be announced.

Furthermore, NSS-NT is planning the TX-Central Regional Space Development Conference here in the Metroplex, tentatively in late November 2017, and we may have at least one space celebrity among our speakers.  Event details to be announced.

If most of the NSS-NT plans are successful, 2017 will be an impressive year for highlighting the coolness of space for the DFW Metroplex, and beyond!  (In addition to the NASA plan to create the coldest temperature in the universe!)  Want to know more?  Come to the NSS-NT meeting!

NSS-NT meetings are held on the second Sunday of each month (except December) beginning at 3:30 p.m. in the large banquet room at Spring Creek BBQ-Irving, 3514 W. Airport Freeway, Irving, TX  75062 (eastbound Hwy. 183 service road, across Hwy. 183 from the Irving Mall, just before Belt Line Rd).

Spread the word:  new and established space enthusiasts are always encouraged to attend!
