NASTAR Center Announces 2010 Classes For Suborbital Scientists
Southampton PA (SPX) Apr 08, 2010
Environmental Tectonics's National AeroSpace Training and Research (NASTAR) Center has announced the next Suborbital Scientist Training Program course dates as June 14, 15, 16 and August 2, 3, 4 of 2010. Course dates for sponsored groups are also set for the summer and fall of 2010.
The NASTAR Suborbital Scientist Training Program provides space flight physiology training for prospective "Suborbital Scientist-Astronauts" wishing to fly experiments on upcoming suborbital space missions.
The course teaches how to handle the physiological and psychological rigors of spaceflight and provides a tangible understanding of how to design experiments for research in a suborbital environment.
The program is three days and includes an overview of the commercial space research industry, altitude and space flight physiology training and distraction factors management
Dates available for individual sign-ups are June 14-16 and August 2-4 of 2010. NASA, Industry Organizations, and University sponsored group dates are available through NASTAR Center.
Brienna Henwood, Director of Space and Research at NASTAR Center, said, "The coming era of commercial suborbital spaceflights will provide low-cost, frequent space access for projects and people to altitudes of 70-140 km with up to 5 minutes of microgravity. The NASTAR Center Suborbital Scientist Training Program provides researchers and their organizations an understanding of how they can take advantage of these newly emerging 'human-in-the-loop' Research and Education Mission (REM) opportunities. In the end, our trainees walk away with confidence and an excellent understanding of the processes necessary to prepare experiments and themselves for suborbital spaceflight."

ISRO To Launch GSLV Without Israeli Astronomical Satellite
Bangalore, India (PTI) Apr 07, 2010
Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has come under criticism from promoters of an Israeli astronomical satellite for allegedly delaying its launch and shifting the blame on schedule slippages. Tauvex comprises three ultra-violet band telescopes developed by Tel Aviv University and Israel space agency (ELOP), with Bangalore-based Indian Institute of Astrophysics providing the software ... read more
