ModAvlTreehouse and the Avl Space Ship Girls
If you are looking for nearby, peaceful accommodations – the ModAvlTreehouse is nicely situated for guests to participate (and also retreat from) the conference. We are only 2 miles north of downtown and The Collider.
Cindy and Lucinda (owners/managers) of the ModAvlTreehouse, are pleased to see this conference emerge this year. We have worked at NASA/Marshall Space Flight Center, on Earth-observation and climate-sensing payloads (and other spaceflight hardware) over the years. Experiences with climate research payloads such as the ISERV and Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS) instruments on the International Space Station, have us particularly interested in ClimateCon. Cindy briefly worked with the NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center’s GOES satellite management team back in the 90’s, and gained insight into the NOAA weather and Earth-sensing instruments, payloads, and (local to Asheville area) massive NOAA data center management. THIS conference and The Collider – are exciting new area developments – and we, the Asheville Space Ship Girls, are impressed!
