The annual ASGSR meeting provides a forum for the international life and physical sciences communities to meet and discuss their latest findings in gravitational and space research and technologies enabling the research.  The meeting also provides opportunities for emerging researchers and student researchers. The program includes a variety of plenary, translational, discipline-specific research, enabling technology, and poster sessions (including a student poster competition with cash awards). Many evening networking receptions opportunities are available, including a reception at the Museum of Flight. Transportation to/from the museum and museum entrance fee is provided as part of ASGSR 2017 registration.

Featured Banquet Speaker: Dr. G. Jane CookScreen Shot 2017 05 17 at 12.14.28 PM

Did you know  Seattle is known as the epicenter of American glass art? From Dale Chihuly to the Pilchuck Glass School, the  Pacific Northwest has for decades been a hotbed of glass art innovation. Because of the strong influence of the glass community in Seattle, we are excited to feature our banquet speaker, Dr. G. Jane Cook, chief scientist for the Corning Museum of Glass. A materials scientist and engineer with more than 20 years of expertise in glass, ceramics, and metallurgy, Dr. Cook worked in research and development for Corning Incorporated for 16 years before making the leap to the Museum side of the house. She is an inventor on over two dozen patent applications, and in 2013, received Corning's prestigious Stookey Award for outstanding exploratory research. Interestingly, Dr. Cook started her career as a NASA Graduate Research Fellow at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  She will be talking about the role of science at the Corning Museum of Glass, the successes and challenges of using high-tech glasses in art, and the intersections of glass and space in the context of engineering, science, research, and art.
