We welcomed back to the show Duane Hyland of AIAA and John Rose of Boeing to discuss the AIAA California Space Day scheduled for March 12-13, 2013 at the Capitol in Sacramento, CA. Our guests went over the agenda which includes models of Curiosity on the Capitol lawn and more, plus meetings with members of the California Assembly and Senate. If you want more information or are planning to attend, email Duane at email@example.com. The schedule is for panel discussions and other meetings on Tuesday, a Tuesday evening reception with members of the California legislature and their staffs, and then the following morning, Wednesday, March 13, we will visit legislative offices to talk California space and the AIAA focus. During our one hour program, Duane and John talked about the AIAA space agenda, both for their national lobby efforts with Congress as well as the state space day meetings. Listeners wanted to know if AIAA was only traditional aerospace or if it included NewSpace and the emerging space companies. Our guests had much to say about this as did I. We also talked about the importance of the California aerospace industry to the entire aerospace industry in the U.S. and even globally. We talked about disturbing trends in our national aerospace industry as well as in the California aerospace industry and the importance of events such as Space Day. We talked about sequestration and its potential impact on space, both for DOD and NASA. Our guests were asked about AIAA educational outreach to schools and different grades and near the end of our discussion, I asked if there was a process to undertake an outcome evaluation for the effectiveness of California Space Day and similar programs across the country.
