'Turning goals into reality' conference May 18-19 to showcase NASA achievements

March 30, 2000

Hundreds of aerospace and transportation officials, engineers and scientists are slated to gather May 18-19 for NASA's second "Turning Goals Into Reality" conference, hosted by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.

Among the topics of discussion: NASA's future research directions and partnership opportunities for technological advances in aeronautics and space flight research, including revolutionary engineering tools and processes for launching air and space transportation firmly into the 21st century and beyond.

The conference will showcase recent aerospace accomplishments by NASA and its industry partners, conduct panel discussions on the state of transportation research today and hold workshops on breakthrough technologies that may increase mission safety and reliability and cut costs.

Confirmed conference speakers include NASA Administrator Dan Goldin; Vern Raburn, president and CEO of Eclipse Aviation, Inc.; and Samuel Venneri, NASA's chief technologist and associate administrator for the Agency's Office of Aero-Space Technology.

The event will be held at the Marshall Center and the Huntsville Marriott, and will precede Marshall's Open House on Saturday, May 20.
