Happy Yuri’s Night

April 12, 2007

Tonight is Yuri’s Night!!!

I am in San Antonio where ISGP is commemorating the event with talks by:

  • Eugene Ilyin, Deputy Director for the Institute of Biomedical Problems in Moscow. Gene has been with the Russian life science program since the beginning. He will speak about the early history of the Russian space life science program.
  • Kenneth Souza. Ken has been a scientist/manager at NASA Ames Research Center for his career. He was involved with the joint US/Russian biosatellite program since the beginning. He will speak about the development of US/Russian relationships – programmatic, political and scientific. As a side note, Ken is also the current President of the American Society for Gravitational and Space Biology.
  • Kathy Ryan, a research scientist at the US Army Surgical Research Institute in San Antonio. She has recently conducted a retrospective review of the history of women in the US astronaut program. She will provide a short overview of this history.

Afterward there will be a gathering at ZEN BAR, 221 E Houston ST.
