HOUSTON – NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) and the Houston Technology Center (HTC), a business accelerator that assists Houston-based emerging technology companies, will host a Space Act Agreement signing and announcement at 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 13, at JSC. Media are invited to attend.
NASA JSC and HTC have formed a strategic partnership to further expand HTC's mission of accelerating the growth of emerging technology companies in the Houston region and to further develop the insights required to support NASA's long-term goals of increasing private and public collaboration.
By opening Johnson Space Center's facilities and resources to outside partnerships, NASA hopes to find areas of common interest where both parties can help each other foster new technologies that not only improve life here on Earth, but also pave the way for future human exploration in space.
JSC Director Michael L. Coats will welcome guests, including HTC President and CEO Walter Ulrich and Houston Mayor Anise Parker who will provide their remarks on the partnership agreement. The signing ceremony will be followed by a question-and-answer session for media.
To arrange for credentials, contact the Johnson Space Center newsroom at 281-483-5111 by 4 p.m. Monday, Dec. 12.
