OASIS and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Los Angeles-Las Vegas Section co-sponsored “Harley Cortez: The Artist as Spaceman,” a meeting of the artist and space science communities. Over the course of the evening, artists and scientists found that they had more in common than previously realized. They share a love and enthusiasm for their work, and see its beauty. (May 2016)
Gareth Powell distributes Ad Astra magazines and 3D-printed space shuttles to the people watching the space shuttle external tank heading to the California Science Center. (May 2016)

At the January 2015 OASIS Lecture, author/historian Richard Foss tells about how food in space has gone from inedible to near-gourmet quality.

Even tall Ivor Dawson (center of photograph) is dwarfed by the Endeavour! Going left from Ivor – Lisa Kaspin-Powell, Gareth Powell and Seth Potter. The visit took place after the OASIS Summer Picnic, July 2014.
OASIS collaborated with The Mars Society LA in putting together Mars Day 2014 at the Columbia Memorial Space Center. Kids could be Mars scientists for a day, racing rovers in the simulated Mars terrain (bottom of photo), learning to build landers, design colonies, and other activities necessary for a Mars mission.
Seth Potter shows future Mars scientists how to design landers on a budget! Mars Day 2014
After the landers are completed, they are tested from the second floor of the Columbia Memorial Space Center. If the egg inside doesn’t crack, the lander passes the test.
Welcome to OASIS, the Greater Los Angeles Chapter of the National Space Society. The Organization for the Advancement of Space Industrialization and Settlement is one of the oldest and largest chapters of the NSS.
