The 2021 American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) SciTech Forum will commence on the 11th of January. Expert personnel from NASA and other industry authorities will attend the 8-day virtual event.
Virtual Meeting on Science
The AIAA SciTech Forum will witness a medley of glittering personalities discussing technological and earth-friendly innovations of science fields. Astronaut Stephanie Wilson of the Artemis Team will join agency leaders and researchers of NASA in various panels and technical sessions.
The NASA experts including industry propulsion personnel will expound on a variety of topics. The diversity of the discussion will enlighten the general public about new strides in science. The topics range from science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to innovations in space technology and aeronautics.
The spacecraft propellant experts will touch upon a novel concept of green propellants. These experts will highlight the importance of green technology as they hail from the science industry and the government. With rising environmental tensions this initiative has come to the forefront.
The new type of green propellant has received a validation nod from NASA’s Green Propellant Infusion Mission (GPIM). The science panel will discuss the successful demonstration of the technology in space. It is a low-toxic monopropellant with compatible propulsion technologies. Prospects of infusing into future missions will also be brought up.
National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) was created in 1958 for research and development in the exploration of space. It comprises four mission directories – Aeronautics Research, Science, Space Technology, and Human Exploration and Operations.
Currently, NASA is headed by administrator Jim Bridenstine, NASA’s 13th leader, and former Congressman. It is headquartered in Washington, with 10 field centers and several installations scattered across the USA. NASA upholds its vision as a mission to discover and expand knowledge for the benefit of humanity.
