The next IMAGE team meeting will take place at the National Space Science & Technology Center (NSSTC) in Huntsville, AL starting on October 31 at 3:00 p.m. CDT and ending at 12:00 p.m. on November 2. No special arrangements will be required for participating foreign nationals. I do request notification from those planning to attend, so I can get a head-count.

The NSSTC is located on the south-west corner of Bradford and Sparkman Drives on the property of the University of Alabama in Huntsville. The visitor entrance is on the south side of the building. There is parking on the south, east, and west sides of the building. This location is less than a mile north of Interstate 565 on Sparkman Drive and no more than about 15 minutes from the airport. There are many hotels in the nearby area. The Huntsville Marriott at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center (256-830-2222), the University's Bevel Center (256-721-9428; is nearly across the street from the NSSTC, but has smaller rooms I'm told), the Courtyard By Marriott (256-837-1400), Country Inn & Suites (256-837-4070), the Hampton Inn (256-830-9400), the Holiday Inn - Research Park (256-830-0600), and the La Quinta Inn - Research Park (256-830-2070) are a few of the nearby hotels.
