CASIS Had A Board Meeting Today

CASIS Had A Board Meeting Today
(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

Keith's note: CASIS, sometimes also known as the ISS National Laboratory (depending who you talk to), held a board meeting today in Washington, DC. In a nutshell, while they have spent a lot of money and time erasing "CASIS" from their branding, websites, and publications, they admitted that they are not changing their name - even if they are. They also claimed that there have been no discussions of setting up a commercial entity even though multiple sources tell me that they have had these conversations with and about this topic and CASIS. I had a short exchange with Joe Vockley, the executive director of CASIS.

Some Twitter notes from the event today:

Looks like @iss_casis is looking to expand its operations beyond ISS to private commercial platforms. That is beyond the scope of their contract with NASA and exceeds the legislation that created the ISS National Lab in the first place— NASA Watch (@NASAWatch) February 8, 2019 Oddly while Joe Vockley from @ISS_CASIS days that there are no discussions within #CASIS about forming a new commercial entity sources report that discussions have been held with CASIS staff on a new commercial effort by CASIS. Stay tuned.— NASA Watch (@NASAWatch) ...
