What we're about

Excited about humankind branching out into the stars? Ready to build that moon base, colonize Mars, mine that asteroid? This is the group for you. Let's share our enthusiasm and knowledge with each other. Let's plan events to explore whats happening in space exploration. Let's create projects that allow for us to contribute to that exciting future. Let's find ways to share this knowledge and enthusiasm with the broader community.
If you are near North Houston, Tomball, Spring, Woodlands, Cypress area or willing to travel to here, then this is the group for you.

Monthly North Houston Space Society Chapter Meeting

Location visible to members

Join us for our Monthly NSS North Houston Space Society (http://NorthHoustonSpace.org) meeting. Come join others who are excited about exploring the cosmos, learning how to use the resources of space to improve human life, and who want to go and spread humanity to the rest of the universe. The meeting will be on Saturday, June 6, 2020 at 2PM ONLINE Via ZOOM: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85216600533 Agenda: 2:00 PM – Opening Remarks – Nathan Price 2:10 PM – Recent Space News – Greg Stanley 2:30 PM – Tracking Satellites – Charles Phillips 3:15 PM – Q&A 3:30 PM – Where were you for the Historic SpaceX DM-2 Launch… Come prepared to share your experience. Some of our members went to Florida to see it. 4:00 PM – End of Meeting Featured Speaker: Charles Phillips CEO of Spaceflight Research Tracking Satellites: The discussion will be a (non-technical) overview of how to track satellites from the Houston area. It is possible to track satellites with inexpensive equipment and easily available software. The discussion will include WHY a person would track satellites and also HOW it is done. The existing Satellite Catalog will be briefly discussed and why some satellites are not shown in that catalog. The discussion is designed to give an overview so an interested person could decide if they want to get more involved and can determine what they might need to generate observations. About the Speaker: Charles Phillips started tracking satellites in 1978 when he was in the US Air Force, he was an orbital analyst. He came to Houston in January 1985 as an Air Force flight controller at the Johnson Space Center, his first flight as a qualified flight controller was STS-51L. In 1990 he started as a civilian flight controller for Spacelab Life Sciences flights and worked STS-40 and STS-58. He also supported the NASA/Mir program and the ISS. Meetings open to all age groups and interest levels. Come explore with us the potential that developing and exploring space has to better life here on earth and to open up new frontiers creating new perspectives that can help enrich the human experience. The Vision of NSS is people living and working in thriving communities beyond the Earth, and the use of the vast resources of space for the dramatic betterment of humanity. The Mission of NSS is to promote social, economic, technological, and political change in order to expand civilization beyond Earth, to settle space and to use the resulting resources to build a hopeful and prosperous future for humanity. Accordingly, we support steps toward this goal, including human spaceflight, commercial space development, space exploration, space applications, space resource utilization, robotic precursors, defense against asteroids, relevant science, and space settlement oriented education.
