Come join OASIS Saturday June 30 for Planetary Defense & Asteroid Exploration Mini-Conference 2018, followed by a happy hour!

The event described below, organized by the local section of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), may be of interest. OASIS and the Aerospace Legacy Foundation will have a joint exhibit table there, so if you attend, be sure to say hello. Afterward, the OASIS members, and anyone else interested, will head over to the nearby Redondo Beach Pier for drinks and food. We will try to get into Barney’s Beanery, but if it is too crowded, we will go elsewhere. If you miss the AIAA event, please feel free to meet us at the Pier. Look for us at Barney’s Beanery. If we are not there, please text Seth Potter at (310) 245-2592, and he will text you our location. Those who join us can order as they please, and we will all need to pay our own way. The pier is walking distance from the library, but it will probably be necessary to move your car out of library parking when the library closes after the AIAA event.
