 Also a YouTube Live Event with Q and A 
NCASVideo YouTube Channel:

Back and forth we go.  Are you tired (literally tired) of switching your clocks one hour back every Fall and one hour forward every Spring? Why do we go to all the trouble?  Do we have any good alternatives?  What’s been tried before, or tried elsewhere?

Polls show that the public is divided on what to do.  But even the experts can’t agree among themselves. Meanwhile, the US Congress and some state legislatures have introduced legislation to alter standard time.

You're encouraged to Google the topic to prepare for this event.  We’re seeking a lively informed discussion, online and in person, focused on problem-solving.

Scott Snell is a flight software engineer at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, tending the onboard computer of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. He received his BS in physics from the University of Maryland. A charter member of NCAS, he has served as its president since 2018.

Refreshments will be available.
