NASA Goddard Space Flight Center

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 2002, Spring 2002, Fall 2001, Spring 2001, and Fall 2000.  For the May 23 colloquium, users with high-bandwidth access can try the H link, which displays both the video and the actual presentation material separately.
