Goddard Space Flight Center

. Career Plait performed web-based public outreach for the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope and other NASA-funded missions while at Sonoma State University from 2000 to 2007. Prior to that, during the 1990s, he was part of the Hubble Space Telescope team at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, working largely on the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph. Iraq war In 1991, retreating Iraqi soldiers set Burgan Field on fire (Kuwaiti oil fires). Smoke plumes from the Greater Burgan oil field extended 50 kilometers in width on any given day, and 2.5 km thick. From satellite observations the plume appeared like a black snake in the desert that extended parallel to the Persian Gulf (EOS Project NASA Goddard Space Flight Center). The Red Adair Service and Marine Company extinguished 117 of the burning well fires, while the Canadian company Safety Boss set the pace with 180 wells extinguished. Declassified 1991 CIA documents claimed that despite the destruction there was no significant depletion of the oil reserves and drop in production capacity at Burgan field. Three gathering stations were, however, too badly damaged to repair. Biography Trueblood was born in 1948 in Cincinnati, Ohio and spent most of his childhood there, where his parents encouraged his interest in astronomy. At the age of 12, he read Jean Texereau's book "How to Make a Telescope" and ordered a mirror-grinding kit from what was then the Edmund Scientific Company (Edmund Scientific Corporation). He completed a 6-inch f 8 mirror and the telescope when he was 14, the same year his father's company transferred the family to Geneva, Switzerland for two years. Mark attended the International School of Geneva during the years 1962-1964, returning to Cincinnati the summer of 1964. He graduated from Finneytown High School in June, 1966 as the Salutatorian of his class. He went on to Brown University that autumn, where he graduated in May 1971 with the degrees AB-ScB (Honors) in Physics. He attended the Ph.D. program at Wesleyan University for one year, then moved to the Washington, DC area in the autumn of 1972. There he worked for the Smithsonian Institution for two years, then a succession of "Beltway Bandit" software government contractors, primarily on contracts with NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. During his 18 years in the Washington, DC area, he spent his final nine years with the Ford Aerospace Corporation, rising to the position of Program Manager. Among his assignments at Ford, he headed the development of the Hubble Space Telescope control center at GSFC. While in the DC area, Trueblood attended the University of Maryland (University of Maryland, College Park) and earned his master's degree in Astronomy in 1983. Michael F. A'Hearn, the Deep Impact Principal Investigator, supervised his thesis on "Small Telescope Automation." Some Hispanics and Latinos have made their names in astronautics, including several NASA astronauts: Astronomers Dr. David Charbonneau of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (w:Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) and Dr. Drake Deming of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (w:Goddard Space Flight Center) (GSFC), working separately on one each of the two planets used a simple technique to gather the infrared (w:infrared) glow that the planetary bodies emit. The cause of the main camera's malfunction may be a faulty transistor or a disruption to the camera's memory. "Both possibilities are things that can be resolved here on the ground," said Ed Campion, a NASA (w:NASA) spokesman at the Goddard Space Flight Center (w:Goddard Space Flight Center) outside Washington, D.C. He also told the Associated Press (w:Associated Press) Saturday that "he was hopeful the problem on the space-based telescope could be fixed from the ground." The tapes were originally stored at Goddard Space Flight Center (w:Goddard Space Flight Center), but, without any explanation, were taken to the US National Archives (w:National Archives and Records Administration) in 1970. A few years after, in 1984, about 700 hundred boxes of tapes were returned to Goddard along with documents stating that the tapes were withdrawn. In a paper published in the February 22 issue of Nature, Dr. Jeremy Richardson of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (w:Goddard Space Flight Center) presented measurements of HD 209458 b (w:HD 209458 b), a hot, Jupiter-like planet located 153 light-years from Earth, in the constellation Pegasus (w:Pegasus (constellation)). Richardson's team found a peak in the infrared spectra and was able to determine that the atmosphere of HD 209458 b likely consisted of clouds of silicate dust. Dr. Mark Swain of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (w:Jet Propulsion Laboratory) led another study of HD 209458 b, and found similar results.

The airport has a few regularly scheduled flights to points within Quebec, but most residents of Gatineau use the nearby Ottawa Macdonald–Cartier International Airport or travel to Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport in Montreal.
