Minutes of March 2019 OSA Meeting

                Oklahoma Space Alliance of National Space Alliance met at Tom and Heidi Koszoru’s house on March 9. In attendance were Tom Koszoru, Adam Hemphill, Mike Hopkins, John Northcutt, Dave Sheely, Brian Swift, Steve and Karen Swift, and Syd Henderson. OSA President Clifford McMurray was unable to attend the meeting so OSA Vice-President David Sheely presided.
                Clifford did an Update before leaving which contained links to articles, and the online videos we watched at the meeting, and it’s online at http://osa.nss.org/Update1903.pdf, so I’ll cover the highlights.
                We watched a video of SpaceX’s Crew Demo 1’s night launch, and the landing of the first stage within the circle. We also watched a video of the docking of the spacecraft with the ISS.
                We watched a video filmed by the rock group OK Go filmed over a hundred sessions in zero-G in a Russian airplane.
                We watched a video of the SpaceShipTwo launch.
                We watched a video of the Hayabusa 2 spacecraft sample-return mission at the asteroid Ryugu.
