=== Cassini Mission ===
 +
 
 +
<p>The Cassini mission is a joint venture of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency to study Saturn and its numerous moons. The Space Science Institute in Boulder is the lead agent for establishing and coordinating imaging tasks for and disseminating/interpretting the images from the Cassini spacecraft.</p>

 +
=== IEEE Green Technologies Conferences ===
 +
 
 +
<p>The IEEE Green Technologies Conferences, endorsed by Region 5 and hosted by one or more Region 5 sections, "bring together scientists, researchers and practitioners from around the world to develop realistic solutions to the current energy crisis, and to reduce carbon emissions and greenhouse gas emissions." (As described in the narrative history report of the 2012 Green Tech Conference.) The following lists provide links to narrative histories for each of the first four Green Tech Conferences and to the procedings of the second through the fourth Green Tech Conferences. (Note: All of the narrative history reports were authored by Patrick Meyer.)</p>
