Minutes of September Meeting
        Oklahoma Space Alliance chapter of National Space Society had its regularly scheduled meeting on September 11, 2021, at the McMurray residence in Norman, Oklahoma. Attending were David Sheely, Clifford and Claire McMurray, John Northcutt, Tim Scott, and Syd Henderson. OSA president Dave Sheely presided over the meeting. He did an Update discussing links to material covered in the meeting and this is online at http://osa.nss.org/Update2109.pdf/ so I’ll cover the details that aren’t covered there.
        We watched a CNBC video in which their NASA watchdog said that spacesuit issues will delay the 2024 Moon landing.
        We watched a Space.com interview with Inspiration4 astronauts Sian Proctor and Christopher Sembroski.
        We watched a video on spacesuit technology by Project Ianus. Among other things it contains what amounts to an adult-sized diaper.
        We watch a video of the technology behind the Tiangong space station.
        We watched a video of the Firefly Alpha explosion. The video shows the rocket moving sideways.
        We watched a video about the Unity 22 straying from its flight path that led to a temporary suspension of Virgin Galactic manned missions.
        We watched a video of the Virgin Orbit launch.
        We watched a video of NASA Administrator Bill Nelson’s address to a Space Symposium. NASA is launching a new app placing space mapping data into the hands of farmers. The address ended with videos on the Artemis project.
