NASA Selects Lifeboat Foundation Proposal

Minden, NV | Posted on August 29th, 2013

NASA has selected the Lifeboat Foundation proposal at
http://lifeboat.com/reports/lifeboat.rfi3.response.pdf as one of the 5
best proposals out of the 402 that were submitted.

NASA has invited the Lifeboat Foundation to send someone to present at
an "Ideas Synthesis" workshop they will conduct in Houston and via
virtual presence. Lifeboat has selected Kevin Berry to be their
representative at this event.

The plan for the Ideas Synthesis in Houston, September 30-October 2, is
to publicly recognize the ideas rated highest, enable participants to
share their idea(s) during a presentation in the Next Generation
Engagement session, provide an opportunity for questions and answers
after all the presentations have been completed, and enable focused
brainstorming. This session will have five presenters and the session is
scheduled from 1:30-4:30 pm on Wednesday, October 2. This session is
focused primarily on developing ideas for the Asteroid Grand Challenge
and takes place after the overall Ideas Synthesis final plenary session.

A video of a presentation announcing NASA's Asteroid Grand Challenge and
a question and answer session is available at

The Lifeboat Committee to Respond to NASA's Asteroid Redirect RFI
consisted of the following Advisory Board Members, who answered their
call for volunteers: Kevin Berry, James Blodgett, John Cassel, Seth
Cochran, Christine Hansen, Zoltan Istvan, Dean Kekoolani, Ravi Kuril,
Perry Monroe, Rod Pyle, John Strickland, Brinkley Warren, and Frank
White. Kevin Berry, John Cassel, Seth Cochran, and Dean Kekoolani were
on the editorial subcommittee. Authors, who contributed ideas that were
used in the response, were Kevin Berry, James Blodgett, Dean Kekoolani,
Perry Monroe, and John Strickland. Eric Klien did some final copy
editing and approved the submission.
