All Colloquia will be held at 3:30 p.m. on Fridays in the Building 3 (Goett) 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 48 hours beforehand. To be added to our mailing list, call the same number.

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.

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 2003,  Spring 2003,  Fall 2002, Spring 2002, Fall 2001, Spring 2001, and Fall 2000.
