Chad Frost, the manager of the NASA Autonomous Systems and Robotics department, has kindly offered to give a dozen lucky DIY Drones members a tour of the UAV facilities at NASA Ames in Mountain View, CA. This is a totally unique experience (I've done it before for a Wired Science PBS TV episode) and totally worth taking a few hours off work for!
The date is Wed, Sept 2nd, and we're shooting for an 10:30 am arrival, staying through lunch. Chad will give us a tour of ~3 UAV projects. You'll make your own way to NASA Ames and park in the visitors' center, and Chad will escort us through security.
Due to NASA regulations, this is limited to US citizens and no more than 12 people. Sign up in the comments below. Futher instructions will come closer to the date.
