Space Policy

The CSS-Ottawa chapter held their latest chapter meeting on Dec 12 at the Fox and Feather pub on Elgin. This event was  driven by a group of very dedicated civil servants who are keen on making a difference. Including making a betterment to Canada’s policy on space! About 50 people attended, heard the presentations by the four panelists, two from the CSS, and then participated in a brief question and answer period. This meeting  partnership is just one more way that we are getting the word out that a future in space is a realizable necessity.

School's Out

With a grand flourish to the end of school, two members of the CSS-Ottawa Chapter gave an exciting presentation to a Grade 5 class at the Ottawa Jewish Community School on June 16. Highlights included Dextre on the ISS, Scott Kelly's 2 year stay in space and some history on the Black Brant rocket. Most fun was the live physics lesson with students on rolling office chairs who 'gained momentum' by throwing a heavy object. Equally, a short range 'stomp' rocket got all the students tuned to the possibility of rocket flight. A great big thanks to Wolf and Gabriella.

Next week the CSS-Ottawa team is again at the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum for Canada Day. Look for us by the standing 'Space' display and drop by for a chat. We'd love to meet with you.
