NASA will hold a conference following President Obama's remarks about the bold new course the administration is charting for NASA and the future of U.S. leadership in human spaceflight on Thursday, April 15, at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. A diverse group of senior officials, space leaders, academic experts, industry leaders and others who have specific expertise or interests related to the topics of discussion will attend the conference and participate in four concurrent sessions on different aspects of the President's new direction for NASA.

Today is the big day! Some of you may have seen the thread I posted last week titled Will Obama announce a Mars mission April 15th?. Well, I'm am very excited about the possibilities of this press conference and we can all see it LIVE!!

The President is scheduled to speak at 2:40 p.m. EDT. It will also be available in standard definition on the regular NASA TV page.

Hmm, Im skeptical a Mars Mission will be announced, however something like that would be great, if also a nice distraction for the public while the world collapses around themXD

It's official, we (NASA) will be in charge of all the cleaning that needs to be done in the Russia Space crafts as part of the deal for them hauling our lame a--es into space, yes the toilets also. It's a small price for Space Unity


E: I can't believe you said Obama-don't let me down..... Better get a pillow read because it will be a hard let down. Remember, if Obama's lips are moving, he is either lying or blowing smoke up your a--.

If you're hoping we're going to Mars you'll be dissapointed. He's increasing NASA's overall funding but cutting funding for manned flights.

NASA: Humanoid robot slated to live on space station

Computerworld - Astronauts aboard the International Space Station are slated to get an interesting new roommate later this year.

A 300-pound humanoid robot, dubbed Robonaut 2 (R2), will be transported to the space station aboard the NASA space shuttle Discovery in September -- one of the final scheduled shuttle missions. Jointly developed by NASA and General Motors Corp., the robot will become a permanent resident on the orbiting station.

It will be broadcast live on some if not all the major news networks.



But I guess that means you need a TV... and cable... and living in the US would 'prolly help.

...But yeah if you have those things then you should be good to go.

Hey thanx for posting that, this is the first I've heard about it.

I've been hearing about robonaut for at least a decade now and around '99 I saw some cool pics and videos of it and they were saying that it would be used to help build the ISS. Here it is over 10 years later and the ISS is pretty much compleated and still no robo.

Glad to see they are finally getting around to doing something with it.

After President Obama landed he was greeted then drove off with his motorcade, live video will resume later.
