Sept. 30 – Oct. 2, 2013
Lunar and Planetary Institute, Houston, Texas

After receiving more than 400 responses to the Asteroid Initiative RFI, NASA continues to review the submissions received from industry, scientists, engineers, and space enthusiasts worldwide.

As a follow up to the RFI, we will invite many of the submitters to share their ideas for discussion with the broader Asteroid Initiative community during an idea synthesis workshop at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston Texas, Sept. 30 – Oct. 2.

Presenter invitations will be issued on Monday, Aug. 19, and presenters may participate in person at LPI or virtually. Virtual participation options will also be available for the public.

Capacity Notice: because of limited seating available during the workshop, registration will be required and general on-site attendance will be restricted. Virtual participation is strongly encouraged. We will post the agenda and virtual participation options on this page as the workshop nears.
