The Fall 2011 eclipse season started on September 11. Here is an AIA 171 image from 0657 UT with the first eclipse! SDO has eclipse seasons twice a year near each equinox. For three weeks near midnight Las Cruces time (about 0700 UT) our orbit has the Earth pass between SDO and the Sun. These eclipses can last up to 72 minutes in the middle of an eclipse season. The current eclipse season started on September 11 and lasts until October 4.

The Office of the Chief Knowledge Officer

The overarching purpose of the OCKO is to cultivate and sustain a learning culture at Goddard in support of mission success. We have instituted various processes and programs for lessons learned and critical knowledge identification, sharing, and application. The focus of the OCKO is to promote local learning practices that enhances domain-specific expertise within an expanded framework of how NASA works.

Lessons Learned Tools

Explore Goddard's tools for capturing, storing, and sharing Lessons Learned.

Goddard Knowledge Exchange

The GKE provides access/ links to GSFC lessons learned content and other knowledge artifacts from one central location within the Goddard library institutional repository.

Case Studies

The Goddard OCKO has a large collection of case studies covering a wide range of missions and technical topics, including launch decision making, procurement, instrument development, risk management and systems engineering.

DG CVn, a binary consisting of two red dwarf stars shown here in an artist's rendering, unleashed a series of powerful flares seen by NASA's Swift. At its peak, the initial flare was brighter in X-rays than the combined light from both stars at all wavelengths under typical conditions.

Pause and Learn

A Pause and Learn (PaL) session is a structured discussion that focuses on recent project developments, challenges, and critical milestones.

Lesson Capturing

These reflective learning experiences are designed collectively identify the critical drivers and enablers of project success for improvement and capture lessons for current and future teams.

The Road to Mission Success Workshop

The Road to Mission Success (RTMS) workshop is an interactive learning series about Goddard's integrated approach to successful missions – the big picture view of how NASA and Goddard does business.

Knowledge Sharing Workshops

The Goddard learning culture thrives on opportunities to share and learn. The Goddard Knowledge Sharing Workshops (KSWs) are primarily focused on topics of relevance to mission success.

Lessons Learned Spotlight

The Lessons Learned Spotlight newsletter is a publication intended to highlight lessons learned from projects, case studies, and other critical knowledge areas to facilitate individual and institutional learning, and to increase the likelihood of mission success.
