February 24, 1998

We have some late breaking chat news that I didn't want you to miss.  For
those of you who haven't participated in chats yet, these are really the
best excitement Aerospace Team Online has to offer you and your class!

They give you the opportunity to virtually converse with NASA experts.
All you need is a browser, like Netscape.  You also need to register in
advance.  This involves filling out a form online with your name and
password.  It's really fun, I promise!  Parents are amazed to hear their
child report "I talked to an airplane designer today at NASA. " (Wouldn't
you be!)

Okay, end of evangelism, here's the scoop!

Thursday, February 24, 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time: Steve Smith,
Aerospace Research Engineer.
Steve is developing advanced design concepts using wind tunnel test and
computational fluid dynamics.
He is also building his a home-built plane of his own design. Registration

Sorry to have to ask you to be flexible on this next one. Can you believe
it's difficult to get time on the busy schedule of the Astronauts in
Training?  The latest is that Gus (that's what they call him) will make
time for us the week of March 9, 1998.  
Keep checking the chat schedule, 
http://quest.arc.nasa.gov/aero/chats/#chatting 
I'll let you know as soon as I can.

Chat with Christopher J. "Gus" Loria (Major, USMC)
NASA Astronaut Candidate (Pilot) Time and Date to be
announced. Gus is here to fly the Vertical Motion Simulator
the world's largest simulator.  He will be flying the latest
simulation of the shuttle orbitor.
