Wishing all of our space friends season’s greetings and all the best for 2019

Dear All,

Thank you for your wonderful support over the last year.

  • Our Houston Spaceport Frontier Lecture series has been a highlight with some notable speakers:
    • Mae Jemison, Leland Melvin, Thomas Zurbuchen, Victor Murray, Alessandra Bonavina and Paolo Nespoli, Steven Gonzalez and Brian Ramos.
  • The Rice chapter of Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS) is going from strength to strength.
  • SpaceCom and the Spaceport Summit were great successes.
  • Our Professional Masters Program in Space Studies continues to develop some outstanding students.  Thanks go to our Advisory Board and seminar speakers for all they do.
  • On the research front, the INSPIRE, TuLIPSS and CLEVER Planets projects are all making great progress.
  • We are gaining an increasingly stronger international reputation, in particular, in relation to the Houston Spaceport project.
  • Locally, new space-themed interactions between TAMU, UH and Rice are developing.

2018 was a great year for space exploration.  Let’s make 2019 an even better one.

All the best for the Festive Season and the coming New Year!
