Today, with more than 31,000 members, American Institute of Aeronautics & Astronautics is the world’s largest professional society devoted to the progress of engineering and science in aviation, space, and defense. The Institute continues to be the principal voice, information resource, and publisher for aerospace engineers, scientists, managers, policy makers, students, and educators. AIAA is also the go-to resource for stimulating professional accomplishment and standards-driven excellence in all areas of aerospace for prominent corporations and government organisations worldwide.

In February 1998, the Sydney Section, Australia, was chartered as the first AIAA Section outside of the USA. The AIAA Sydney Section encompasses all AIAA members in New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory, and the Section Council is currently based in Canberra, ACT.

damn, just saw this (not that i coulda gone, didn’t get out of work til half seven) but miriam is great. saw her session at adelaide festival of ideas. she outlined the case for water being a pretty key aspect of searching for possible signs of life elsewhere. made a lot of sense. and the tidbinbilla station does some fantastic, unsung, work – pity more ‘berrans don’t know as much about it as they should…

anyone go? comments, feedback – links?

Indeed Gungahlin Al! The local AIAA section organised that presentation by Dr Mark Adler on the Mars Rovers last year. We have a great program of events lined up for this year as well – stay tuned for more details!

That we can attend this sort of thing for free here is one of the things that rocks about Canberra. They are great “brain food”.
Went to a good presentation last year by one of the head guys from NASA’s Mars Rover program.
