Wednesday, Feb 7 – Update on Environmental Issues and Compliance

Our opening speaker for this conference will be Ms. Nicole Stott.  Nicole is a veteran astronaut with two spaceflights and 104 days living and working in space on both the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station (ISS).  She performed one spacewalk, was the first person to fly the robotic arm to capture the free flying HTV cargo vehicle, she was the last crew member to fly to and from their ISS mission on a Space Shuttle, and she was a member of the crew of the final flight of the Space Shuttle Discovery, STS-133.  She is also a NASA Aquanaut, who along with her NEEMO9 crew, lived and worked in saturation during an 18-day and longest to date mission on the Aquarius undersea habitat. 

Nicole was the first astronaut to paint in space.  After 27 years with NASA, she is now an artist and combines her spaceflight experience and artwork to inspire Earth and Earthling appreciation, and to increase awareness of the outstanding work being done every day in space to improve life right here on Earth.

Our Keynote Speaker for this session will be Beth Knauss from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection Soutwest District.
