ATV-2 / MagISStra flown cover – Umberto Cavallaro – ASITAF AD*ASTRA N° 12 – March 2012

On February 28th we had the pleasure of presenting to the Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli the folder containing one of the covers which ATV-2 carried last year to the ISS. Paolo Nespoli had personally recovered from the ATV the covers which were then signed by him and the by the other 5 members of the Expedition 26-27: Dmitry Kondratyev, Cady Coleman, Andrey Borisenko, Alexander Samokutyaev and Ron Garan.

Besides the ISS octagonal board “seal”, Nespoli also put on the cover his personal MagISStra hand stamp, which after the mission has been made unserviceable.

“The AS.IT.AF. flown and signed cover is presented in an elegant folder designed by our member the artist  Alec Bartos and is reserved for the AS.IT.AF. members only. ”

Graphic design posters for Purdue University – Bioethics Lectures Series

For the past six years Jonathan Beever and Nicolae Morar, with the support and encouragement of their sponsors, have continued to press the issue of ethics in policy, science and technology at Purdue via the Lectures in Ethics, Policy, and Science (formerly the Bioethics Seminar Series). They intend to build opportunities for engagement between philosophy, policy, and science at a campus-wide level and to raise awareness of the ethical implications of biotechnological development for our environment both local and global. Hosting nationally-recognized scholars brings new perspectives to the Purdue community on these issues. Their objectives for the bioethics seminar series project included the following.

1) Develop interdisciplinary discourse on “hot” issues in science and ethics

2) Educate for intentionality in science and technology development at Purdue

3) Establish connections between Purdue’s science and technology and Indiana University’s Center for Bioethics

4) Involve philosophy in policy and ethics decisions at a campus-wide level

5) Build opportunities for engagement

6) Broaden our scope to include issues of climate change in discussion of bioethics

7) Involve nationally-recognized scholars in diverse discussions of bioethics
