Telescope credit NASA STScI WikiSky epoch J2000 Boss was selected to join the NASA Science Working Group for the Kepler Mission and the NASA External Independent Readiness Board for the Exoplanet Exploration Program, both charged with the detection and characterization of nearby habitable Earth-like planets. Boss is a fellow of numerous scientific academies and societies and regularly chairs working groups in his field. The '''Navigator Program''' is a long term NASA project charged with over-seeing all missions related to the detection and characterization of Earth-like planets (Solar twin). It also seeks to further understand how galaxies, stars and planets form. Navigator, with a twenty-five year time window, is essentially an umbrella program for more specific current and proposed projects which seek out Earth analogues and possible extraterrestrial life. The main components of Navigator include two ground-based and two space based missions. A standard rocket engine uses a bell shaped nozzle to contain and direct the exhaust gases. However the optimum shape of the bell depends on the air pressure which reduces as the rocket climbs. An aerospike uses the air flowing past the rocket to form half of a 'virtual bell' which automatically compensates for the reducing pressure. credit NASA, Marshall Space Flight Center link Aerospike engine According to NASA, the intentional destruction of FY-1C created 2,841 high-velocity debris items, a larger amount of dangerous space junk than any other space mission in history.

If this means complete power, as opposed to having to deal with the checks and balances (w:checks and balances) built into our federal government, this is some of what I'd do: I'd end abortion and all the precipitating factors leading to it (poverty, dysfunctional family dynamics, relaxed sexual mores, alcohol and drug addiction...). I'd mobilize a set of dramatic initiatives to, not just curb global warming (w:global warming), but to actually start to reverse it. I would unilaterally disarm our nuclear weapons. I'd stop the production of nuclear energy. (Anybody hear of Chernobyl (w:Chernobyl)?) I would grant amnesty and family reunification to illegal immigrants (w:Illegal Immigration in the United States). (During a talk at an immigration rally in Arizona several years ago, I said we walked through the slums of w:Juarez, Mexico Juarez , where violence is off the charts and many of the children are extremely hungry. If I was their parent, I'd do everything I could to get these children out of harms way and get them something to eat – even if it meant risking crossing the border illegally.) I would end the death penalty. Also in Arizona, I read a newspaper story about a death penalty protester who posed: “Why do we kill people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong?” Good question. I would increase, exponentially, American foreign aid (it is currently only 4% of the budget) to try to help stem world hunger much more – 24,000 people starve to death every day in the world – and to help realize Habitat for Humanity (w:Habitat for Humanity)'s goal of providing adequate housing, (“…for every person in the world.”) I would bring peace to urban war zones around the country. (In part of this effort, our family moved into a dangerous part of Cleveland, Ohio, to be part of the solution.) I would end w:homelessness homelessness . (We take homeless people into our home. And we will be doing the same in the West Wing (w:West Wing). I mean the Lincoln bedroom (w:Lincoln Bedroom) is free, as an example.) I would tremendously jack down and simplify the economy, shifting America back to much more of a local production for local consumption orientation, like it was in the “old days.” I would mobilize efforts for a tremendous come back of the small family farm and the practice of growing organically. This was once the backbone of our country, I told the newspaper Country Today in Wisconsin. And it should be again. I would get people to tighten their belts and pay off the w:National Debt National Debt so our children don't inherit it. During a talk at the University of Notre Dame (w:University of Notre Dame) recently, I said I would redirect the technical smarts at NASA (w:NASA) toward coming up with better water filtration systems, solar panel (w:solar panel)s, wind turbine (w:wind turbine)s..., as opposed to working on things like going to space destinations where we: can't breathe the air, there's no gravity and there's no food! “That might be, oh, a hint God doesn't want us there,” I said. I would give some of the land back to the Native Americans (w:Native Americans) so it's equitable, like it should have been from the beginning. And I would give the African Americans (w:African Americans) tangible reparations for past atrocities (w:Reparations for slavery) and the ongoing trans-generational problems slavery (w:slavery) caused. And, I would ensure – as impossible as this seems – that the Cleveland Browns (w:Cleveland Browns) had a winning season, soon... For a look at how I would actually try to make a lot of this happen, the Cleveland Browns notwithstanding, go to my rather extensive position papers at ''Atlantis'' lifted off in fair weather at 2:20 p.m. EDT (1820 UTC) from the w:Kennedy Space Center Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral (w:Cape Canaveral), Florida. The launch was viewed by over 40,000 spectators at Kennedy, including a small group chosen by NASA (w:NASA) for a space "tweetup (w:Twitter)". Carrying six veteran astronauts and an assortment of parts for the International Space Station (w:International Space Station) (ISS), the shuttle took off without any delays. This mission, scheduled to take twelve days, is the aging shuttle's 32nd voyage into space of its 25-year career.

at the University of York. Between 1987 and 1988, he served as a member of the UK National Curriculum (National Curriculum (England, Wales and Northern Ireland)) science working party. Between 1991 and 1999, he worked as the head of the International School of Geneva, the oldest and largest international school in the world. In 1999, he was appointed director-general of the IBO. In 2003 he was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Education from the University

by David Harel, Amir Pnueli and brothers Ido and Hagi Lachover; to develop and commercialize a tool to support statecharts and their execution. This, based on work done by David Harel at the Weizmann Institute of Science, working as a consultant for the Lavi Aircraft (IAI Lavi) project, which was being developed at the time by Israel Aerospace Industries. Specifically, Harel was hired to help develop a solution for clearly designing and defining the aircraft's avionics systems; and came-up with the concept of statecharts and a tool to support their development.
