The American Astronautical Society (AAS) and the Kennedy Space Center are sponsoring the “International Space Station: The Next Decade” national conference on November 16 – 17 at the Radisson Resort, Cape Canaveral, Florida. The Conference will begin with a panel discussion between the ISS International Partner Program Managers discussing the importance of the ISS in the next decade. It will continue with panel discussions focusing on ISS utilization and research, including the ISS as a National Lab, preparing for exploration, research and development opportunities and results, and transportation options in the post-Shuttle era.

A visual tour of the ISS will be hosted by an experienced ISS Expedition crewmember and the Conference will close with a conversation with the on-orbit ISS crew.
