What an exciting time it is for those of us who love space travel and space development!

Sunday, February 11, 2018:  the National Space Society of North Texas (NSS-NT) brings the latest updates on Near Earth Asteroids (NEAs), and also on the first launch – and the future possibilities for – the SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket.  NSS Director and NSS-NT Vice President Ken Ruffin gives his updated presentation Near Earth Asteroids:  What Can We Do About Them? for the 5th anniversary of the Chelyabinsk, Russia, NEA airburst, and also for those two NEAs that are just missing the Earth a few days prior to this meeting.  Additionally, Ken has interesting videos that illustrate and explain the Falcon Heavy rocket launch, why it is so important, and future missions for the world’s most powerful rocket.

Furthermore, several upcoming public events at Dallas-Ft. Worth (DFW) area museums, universities, etc. hosting NSS-NT are being discussed.
