PROMOTIONS :None to report for this cycle.
ACTIVITIES : Much of this month was spent committed to chatting on the Chapter’s Discord Server, with roughly 720 separate posts being made on Discord between 02/01/2023 and 02/28/2023. Communications, Science, and Engineering Department activities are listed below in the comments.
- Time spent working on Corps of Engineering Auxiliary projects this month: 30 Hrs, Meeting hours: 1.5 Hrs - Lt. Stephen
COMMENTS : February saw a good start to the new year with members coming together again to continue to “Boldly Go”.
-We’ve seen an increase in our science activities with new way for our crew to engage in Astronomy using a program called the Slooh Telescope. Slooh is a robotic telescope service that can be viewed live through a web browser. It was not the first robotic telescope, but it was the first that offered "live" viewing through a telescope via the web. Additionally, we are now streaming NASA Launches in our Main Viewscreen Channel on Discord. The first launch will be the SpaceX Crew-6 Mission. This mission is the sixth crewed operational NASA Commercial Crew flight.
-The Communications Department distributed Ship's Log Supplemental for February 2023. We added the position of Ship’s Counselor and completed a vote to finalize the update the Members Handbook accordingly.
-The STARFLEET Marine Corps has come back to the chapter with the addition of the 518th Marine Strike Group “The Dragons”. This MSG will be an Aerospace Branch unit that will supplement the Chapter’s science activities
We hope that everyone had a great month and, as always, Live Long and Prosper!
