Goddard Space Flight Center

The Spring Series has concluded.  Thank you for attending.  The Scientific Colloquium will resume in September, 2002.

NEW!   The Goddard Library has made streaming video available for some colloquia by clicking on the V in the column to the right of the topic.  Due to speakers' authorizations, some videos are not playable outside Goddard.  Please note: connection speeds lower than 56 K may be able to handle only the audio portion of the transmission. Some videos are also available for Fall 2001 and Spring 2001. Coming soon - links to videos of older Scientific Colloquia.

For the time being, access to Goddard Space Flight Center is limited to those holding Goddard badges or official visitors.  You can become an official visitor by finding a badged Goddard employee to escort you.  The Scientific Colloquium Committee cannot promise to provide escorts.  We regret the inconvenience to our regular guests.

Due to continued construction in Building 3, the Colloquium will be held in the Building 8 auditorium, except as noted.

Coffee and tea will be served at 3:00 p.m., courtesy of GEWA.   If you plan to attend and do not have a NASA
badge, please contact Carol Krueger, at (301) 286-6878, at least 24 hours beforehand. To be added to our mailing list, call
the same number.
