The Sigma Series Lectures, presented at the Virginia Air and Space Center in downtown Hampton, provide to the general public this same opportunity for exposure to interesting technical topics. These lectures, however, are usually at a somewhat less detailed level, because the audience may consist of people with non-technical backgrounds in addition to local high school and college students.

If you would like to receive e-mail notifications about upcoming lectures, please send a message to sigma-series-subscribe@lists.nasa.gov and follow the confirmation instructions you’ll receive.
