“It is a great pleasure and an honour for us to have NASA, the very manifestation of the term ‘high tech,’ speak at our Technical Sessions,” says Leif Johan Sevland, President and CEO of the ONS Foundation.

“We are excited to participate in ONS 2016.  Increasingly, we are finding common ground between space technology meant for exploring the moon and Mars and the technologies we need on Earth, such as those needed for oil and gas exploration,” according to Mr Martin.
