                                 Getting Ready for ASGSB 2003

     The 19th annual meeting of the ASGSB will be
held November 12-15, 2003 at the Huntsville
Marriott, 5 Tranquility Base, Huntsville, Alabama.
Conveniently located, the Marriott is only 10 minutes
from the Huntsville International Airport and a five-
minute drive from Marshall Space Flight Center and
Redstone Arsenal. The hotel provides complimen-
tary shuttle van service to and from the airport.
     Hopefully we will be permitted on site at the
NASA/Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC). If so, a
NASA bus tour will take us to view components of
the International Space Station (ISS), rocket test
stands, and other areas. MSFC is responsible for
designing and building the life support systems that
provide the crew of the ISS a comfortable environ-
ment in which to live and work. More information
on MSFC activities is available at
     The Marriott is located on the grounds of the US
Space and Rocket Center. On Thursday evening, the
reception will be held in the Center’s museum, a
short walk up the hill from the Marriott. We can look             (Photo credit: Huntsville Convention

           John Kiss, Professor of Botany at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio
                 As I begin this statement on my vision for ASGSB, I’d like to say a few words on
           what the Society means to me on a personal level. I have been a member of ASGSB
           since 1987 and feel that I have “grown up” in the Society. The first meeting I attended
           in October of that year was in Logan, Utah just as I started a post-doc position. I was
           struck by the friendly, open relationships among members from very different sub-
           disciplines who had a common interest in gravitational and space biology. As a new-
           comer to the field, I felt immediately welcome, even by established, well-known
                 My initial impressions have proven to be valid for me today just as they were at
           that first meeting. Thus, I’d like to mention my opinion of the four strengths of the
           Society. First, the interdisciplinary nature of our field is alive and well in ASGSB.
           Attending talks and interacting with neurobiologists, bone and muscle physiologists
           provide a fascinating opportunity for intellectual cross fertilization for a plant biologist
           (i.e., me) to learn about many other interesting fields.
                 Another key strength of ASGSB is that the Society is international in character.
           This also was evident at the first meeting when I met such scientists as Andreas Sievers
           of Germany and Augusto Cogoli of Switzerland. At the moment, about 20% of our
           members are from outside the United States, and this trend should continue as we
           share facilities on the International Space Station (ISS).
                 A third strength of our society is that we are very welcoming of students. ASGSB
           recognizes the need to cultivate, stimulate, and encourage the next generation of
           scientists in our field. I am pleased to note that the “student friendliness” of the Society
           has been increasing in recent years. The Society has been providing travel grants for
           students to attend our meetings. In addition, the student poster competition (both at
           the undergraduate and graduate level) has been well-attended and provided for very
           lively discussions at the meeting.
                 Fourthly, ASGSB has been very active in outreach efforts at many levels. We have
           a fine Web site (maintained by Tim Mulkey) that is packed with lots of information,
           including downloadable slide sets, interesting fact sheets, and numerous educational
           links and materials. The president, board members, and regular members have all
           been active in promoting our research and NASA life sciences on Capitol Hill.
                 My goal as president would be to directly build on these four strengths of ASGSB
           as we continue to move into an era with many opportunities and challenges for space
           life sciences. What are some of the challenges ahead for us as a society? Clearly the
           funding situation at NASA and other international space agencies is an ongoing
           problem. As the hardware costs for the ISS continue to escalate, will we have funds to
           do high quality scientific research? Will we have a sufficiently large crew on the ISS to
           perform important experiments? As president, I would try to follow in the footsteps of
           our current leadership who have worked very hard to educate NASA and the Congress
           on the importance of maintaining funds to space life sciences. In fact, many times in
           the recent past, our society members have come together in helping to restore many
           funding cuts to life sciences that were initially proposed. We must maintain our
           continued vigilance in this area.
                 A related concern at ASGSB has been sustaining and expanding our membership.
           As president, I would make this a high priority and build on existing efforts in expand-
           ing membership at all levels: student, regular, and corporate members all are important
           for the health of ASGSB. I appreciate the opportunity of being nominated for the
           presidency of our society, and, if elected, would be honored and proud to serve the
           members of ASGSB.

4   ASGSB NEWSLETTER 18 (3)   Fall 2002
Present Their “Vision” for ASGSB

       Tom Scott, Professor of Biology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
            I believe the American Society of Gravitational and Space Biology (ASGSB) stands at a precari-
       ous cross road. We look upon ourselves proudly as the premiere fundamental science group seeking
       to advance our understanding of the relationship of gravity to life at all its levels of complexity. The
       membership of the Society has a track record of truly astonishing accomplishments. Yet, in the last
       several years, there have been setbacks to maintaining the necessary momentum to allow continued
       progress in the field. The three most substantial difficulties, and ones ASGSB is well suited to deal
       with, have been the continuous decrease of funding for basic research by NASA, the drastic cutbacks
       in flight experiments, and the ever-changing priorities and diminishing promise of the International
       Space Station. These problems confound NASA perennially and only seem to worsen. Sadly, it is our
       membership that suffers as much or more than any group.
            I therefore further believe that it is the time for the members of the ASGSB to decide what kind of
       future we want and how we want to get there. Clearly we must be willing to act and interact in new
       and more efficient ways. Below are some ways I believe we can best achieve success and growth for
       the Society:
            1) The ASGSB should champion multidisciplinary studies related to gravitational and space
         biology. There are innumerable science questions that beg multidiscipline approaches and the
         ASGSB has worked to identify them and has had a good record of getting PIs and groups together.
         The presentation of many symposia of different yet interacting topics have born this out for years.
         We work with the concept routinely. Yet we should make a very strong case to NASA that
         multidisciplinary research projects are very often better than the sum of their parts and that they
         can yield excellent cost benefits. The ASGSB can do much more to bring people and ideas together
         before it is “proposal-time.” Young investigators and our international partners might benefit
         greatly by interacting more with the PI community currently being funded. And vice-versa. I
         propose the Society should set up some apparatus such as “an Idea Clearinghouse” for PIs to
         deposit research notions that would facilitate the teaming up with others having overlapping and
         interacting thoughts and ideas. Such a communication device should be relatively easy to set up in
         such a way to operate without unduly threatening the turf of those involved.
            2) The ASGSB should develop an alliance with the Astrobiology Institute, the advanced life
         support community, and other like-minded societies. Again, there is much to be gained by
         exchanging ideas and information with groups that inevitably have overlapping research interests,
         approaches, and goals. We should encourage members of the Institute and others to join and
         contribute to our Society.
            3) ASGSB is in need of more members. Our current membership has been declining in the
         past few years. Participation at the annual meeting has, too. It is clearly time to launch a new
         membership drive. Foremost in such a drive should be extra efforts to attract more students by
         offering more encouragement as well as greater inducements and financial support for attendance
         at our meetings.
            4) ASGSB must greatly increase fund raising. There is much ahead of us to be accomplished
         and society dues cannot pay for most of it. Additional corporate and other donors must be sought
         so the Society can increase support for small research efforts and other projects. We should endow
         more prizes for members and increase monetary incentives for students. Therefore, in addition to
         seeking new members, ASGSB must mount an ambitious fund raising drive.
       These are the concerns I have as a long–time devotee of the Society. I was a founding member of the
       ASGSB, I have served on its Governing Board two times, and I am committed to our society’s pur-
       pose and to its future. I served as Program Scientist for the Space Biology Program in NASA’s Life
       Sciences Division at NASA Headquarters from 1992 to 1997. In addition, I have served on the
       Biology faculty at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for 33 years as well as serving as
       Chairman for 10 of those years and Research Director for the University for 5 years. In sum, I feel I
       have the experience and the time and energy to help bring about the changes I have outlined above.
       I will work very hard to make the Society better and stronger.

                                                                        ASGSB NEWSLETTER 18 (3)   Fall 2002       5

                                      Floating Students at Work

    16 September 2002. There are students who do
    research in laboratories, but for some this is just
    too normal. They want to take their ideas into
    space. Well, that might not be possible just yet,
    but a persistent student can get the opportunity
    to do the next best thing: parabolic flights. It’s a
    way of creating a weightless environment using
    an airplane, and yes, it is very exciting.

    universities across Europe. They were the best

       NASA Administrator Names Whitson First ISS Science Officer

          NASA Administrator Sean O’Keefe on September 16 named Dr. Peggy Whitson
      as the first NASA ISS Science Officer. In making the announcement, Administrator
      O’Keefe noted that with the space station nearing its second year with a perma-
      nent crew living on board, it’s time to increase emphasis on the orbiting outpost’s
      main mission—research. Dr. Whitson, who has a doctorate in biochemistry from
      Rice University in Houston, became the station’s first resident scientist when she
      arrived at the ISS June 7, 2002, as an Expedition 5 Flight Engineer.
          “Dr. Peggy Whitson is an obvious choice for NASA’s first ISS Science Officer,”
      said Administrator O’Keefe. “In addition to a doctorate in biochemistry, she is the
      recipient of numerous awards and fellowships. Before her selection as an astro-
      naut, Dr. Whitson’s NASA career included time spent as a researcher. She helped
      develop experiments to fly on the space shuttle, served as the project scientist for
      the Shuttle-Mir program and was the co-chair of the U.S.-Russian Mission Science
      Working Group.
          “Dr. Whitson has dedicated her career to the pursuit of scientific knowledge,
      and she recognizes that some of the problems we face today here on Earth have
      answers that will be discovered in future activities on the International Space
      Station,” added Administrator O’Keefe.
          The NASA ISS Science Officer is a new duty assignment that will be made for a
      NASA astronaut on each ISS Expedition Crew. For now, the Science Officer will
      focus on U.S. research conducted aboard ISS. NASA will explore with its 15
      international partners the potential to expand the Science Officer role as the
      station’s research capabilities are increased.
          The NASA ISS Science Officer will work with the U.S. research community to
      understand and meet the requirements and objectives of each ISS experiment. This
      will help achieve maximum scientific research returns. The Science Officer will
      continue to be the point-of-contact for the ISS crew with NASA-sponsored princi-
      pal investigators as well as payload developers, integrators and trainers.
          Dr. Whitson’s Science Officer duties will continue when she returns to Earth
      for those experiments conducted during Expedition 5. Her post-flight responsi-
      bilities include participation in “debriefs” with NASA principal investigators and
      active collaboration with their analysis of experimental observations.

                      On September 30 Reeve Lindbergh, daughter of
                  legendary aviator Charles Lindbergh, visited Johnson
                  Space Center to receive a copy of her father ’s Pulitzer
                  Prize winning book , The Spirit of St. Louis, from STS-108
                  astronauts Linda Godwin and Mark Kelly. Linking
                  Charles Lindbergh’s spirit of aviation with modern space
                  flight, the STS-108 space shuttle crew carried the book
                  into space last December and autographed it while in
                  orbit to honor the 75th anniversary of Lindbergh’s
                  celebrated flight over the Atlantic.

Recent ISS Activities: New Residents, New Growth, and the Lili Episode

     On September 29, 2002, an unmanned Russian
resupply craft successfully docked to the Interna-
tional Space Station, bringing almost a ton of food,
fuel and supplies to the residents on board, and for
the next trio of space travelers, who will arrive on
the ISS in November. The Progress 9 vehicle linked
up to the aft docking port of the Zvezda Service
Module of the ISS. Some of the supplies included
clothing and personal items for the Expedition Six
crew, consisting of Commander Ken Bowersox and
Flight Engineers Nikolai Budarin and Don Pettit.
They will be launched aboard Endeavour on the

transferring control of the ISS to a support
group in Moscow. As Hurricane Lili ap-
proached the Gulf coast on Wednesday, Octo-

Houston was turned off in a carefully planned
sequence, and its electronic equipment covered
with waterproof plastic sheets. Members of the

segment. The Houston Support Group, U.S.
flight controllers and others based in Mission

had practiced for just such a contingency less
than three weeks before.

contact with flight control teams gathered in a
conference room at Johnson Space Center. While the BCC was in operation, high-rate data downlink from the
station was not available. Since they were unable to monitor the movement of the solar arrays, flight controllers
put them in a fixed position. As a result, power to some station payloads and systems was reduced.
     Houston flight control of the station was resumed about 6 p.m. Thursday, October 3, a little over 12 hours
after reactivation of Mission Control Houston, begun when it became apparent that Lili would not hit the area.
With Houston’s Mission Control Center back in operation, the deliberate power up of the International Space
Station proceeded smoothly. The huge U.S. solar wings were freed from the fixed position they held during the
perceived threat from Hurricane Lili and began tracking the sun again.

              ReMAP Task Force Makes Recommendations to OBPR

          The Research Maximization and Prioritization Task Force, known as ReMAP, evaluated
      research productivity and priorities for the entire scientific, technological, and commercial
      portfolio of NASA’s Office of Biological and Physical Research (OBPR). Their findings and
      recommendations provide a framework for prioritizing a productive research program for
      OBPR and for the International Space Station (ISS).
          ReMAP Chair Rae Silver and co-chair David Shirley wrote in their cover letter, “We
      believe that the findings and recommendations in this report will enhance the probability
      that a credible and productive research program can be established for OBPR, beginning
      with current ground-based capabilities, access to the Shuttle for research purposes, and ISS
      U.S. Core Complete configuration, and continuing with an expanded research program
      through significant enhancements to the ISS research capability.”
          The final report, which was made available on September 10, identifies two
      overarching programmatic goals: the first involves research enabling human exploration of
      space and the second involves basic research of intrinsic scientific interest. The Task Force
      noted that the majority of OBPR research falls in one or both of these categories, and that it
      is NASA’s responsibility to prioritize the research. Task Force members recognized the
      need to enhance ISS research capabilities in order to accomplish these goals.
          Commercial space research was also considered by the Task Force, which noted that it
      is part of public policy for NASA to facilitate the commercial use of the ISS.
          Recommendations included encouraging NASA to continue coordination with ISS
      international partners, in particular to expedite development of the ISS centrifuge facility
      (currently provided by the National Space Development Agency of Japan (NASDA)). Other
      findings and recommendations focused on OBPR organization and management, with an
      emphasis on conducting interdisciplinary research, exploring alternative research solicita-
      tion methods, and attracting quality scientists.

Not Just Another Mission: NASA Helps Launch New Education Center in Phoenix

NASA Headquarters, Washington—October 4, 2002. Astronaut Carlos Noriega and Estrella Mountain
Community College President Homero Lopez launched a new education era today with the dedication of the
NASA Center for Success in Math and Science in Phoenix.
     The newly dedicated student academic-support center, located on the Avondale, Arizona, campus of
Estrella Mountain Community College, was established to inspire and support socially and economically
disadvantaged students in their pursuit of higher education in science, technology, engineering, and math
     “NASA recognizes our nation has no greater task than motivating our youth to reach their full potential,”
said George E. Reese, Assistant Administrator for Equal Opportunity Programs, NASA Headquarters, Wash-
ington. “Through our best efforts, we can help build a brighter future for the next generation by focusing on
the needs of children in the classroom today,” Reese said.
     In naming the Center, Estrella College recognized NASA’s commitment to inspiring the next generation of
leaders and explorers. The NASA Center for Success in Math and Science is committed to developing students
prepared to take part in Arizona’s knowledge economy. The Center also will serve as a vital link for
underrepresented students as they successfully prepare for careers in a high-tech tomorrow.
     Through the Center, NASA will provide educators with unique resources to create learning opportunities
that support educational excellence. In addition, the Center will encourage family involvement and will work
to establish links with business and community groups.
     Sponsored by NASA’s Office of Equal Opportunity Programs, the partnership between Estrella Mountain
and NASA will not only reach out to local Hispanic students in metropolitan Phoenix, it will also engage
Hispanic Serving Institutions currently not involved in NASA programs, especially community colleges.
