University of Texas, USA — The FISO (Future In-Space Operations) Telecon Series was begun in 2006, by the then-active FISO Working Group, as an innovative outreach effort to bring space technology, engineering, and science to the widespread space community with presentations from leaders in their field.
Although the telephone line telecon can host a limited number of invited participants, we are pleased to archive the slides and audio from them for the general public.
This archive of FISO telecon presentations is openly public, but the telecon itself is not.
Users should consult these guidelines when downloading from this archive.

P.S. “Oh yes, people often ask why we don’t just Webex this, and do video with Ustream or YouTube and all that stuff. The answer is simple. Because we don’t need to.
“In our experience, participating in other online presentations, video just is an added, and somewhat useless, complication. The speaker would need to screw around trying to connect properly, and in most cases waste a lot of time doing so, unless a lot of time is devoted to preparation.
“We could also give jetpacks to everyone to let them come to a central auditorium to hear the presentation, but we don’t think we need to do that either.”
