OCTOBER LUNCHEON Communicating a Space Agency’s Mission: “Off the Earth, For the Earth”


International Space StationThe US National Laboratory on the International Space Station (ISS) offers a unique opportunity for breakthrough research and technology development.  Yet many people don’t realize that it’s there, let alone the benefits it’s providing to those of us on Earth.  Join us as Pete Hasbrook, an Associate ISS Program Scientist with the space agency in Houston, explains strategies for capturing the attention of scientists, the media and the general public, and making them realize that their laboratory is open for business and providing scientific results and everyday benefits.

In this session you will learn:

  • The broad range of science, technology and exploration research performed on the ISS
  • How the space agency merges ISS messaging into its overall strategies and campaigns
  • How the space agency engages scientists, industry, and other potential users of the ISS
  • How the space agency communicates the science content, results and benefits to all stakeholders

Pete HasbrookBio: Pete Hasbrook has several roles in the ISS Program Science Office (PSO).  He works with science counterparts in the International Partner agencies to communicate science plans and promote international collaboration.  As part of the PSO, he works with the space agency and contractor community to organize information about ISS science so it is available and understandable, within the space agency and for the media and the public.  One of his favorite duties is explaining ISS research and benefits, within the space agency, to potential users outside the space agency, and to the public.

For the first half of his career at the space agency’s center in Houston, Mr. Hasbrook was a flight controller in the Space Shuttle Mission Control Center, first in flight planning and then in emergency and environmental systems.  He moved to the ISS Program in 2002 as an “Increment” mission manager, and then to the ISS Program Science Office in 2012.  Mr. Hasbrook holds a BS in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Notre Dame, and an MS in Physical Science from the University of Houston Clear Lake.

This luncheon is graciously sponsored by Orbital ATK.
