Minutes of October 2021 Oklahoma Space Alliance Meeting

        Oklahoma Space Alliance met October 9 at the McMurray’s house. Attending in person were Adam Hemphill, Claire and Clifford McMurray. Dave Sheely, and Syd Henderson. Robin Scott attended by Zoom. After a late start, 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/Update2110.pdf so I’ll cover the details that aren’t covered there.
        We watched a video presenting the new uniforms for Space Force. The unforms are compared to Star Trek (particularly Saavik in The Wrath of Khan) and a bellhop. The buttons use the Space Force emblem,
        We watched a video of the highlights and splashdown of Inspiration 4.
        We watched a video of Northrup-Grumman’s mission extension satellite that is designed to add propulsion units to satellites that are dying for lack of fuel.
        We watched a video from Mars rover Perseverance showing Ingenuity flying at 8 meters height.
        We watched a video “Creating the First Gas Station in Space.” Orbit Fab is launching propellant depots into space. Previously, Orbit Fab was the first company to supply water to the ISS.
