WASHINGTON, April 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Media are invited to attend a breakfast reception at 8:30 a.m. EDT April 23 to celebrate the 24th anniversary of Hubble Space Telescope's launch into space with the opening of the "Repairing Hubble" exhibit at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, located at 600 Independence Ave. SW in Washington.
The exhibit features two Hubble instruments that played a crucial role in the telescope's success over the years. The Corrective Optics Space Telescope Axial Replacement (COSTAR) instrument, installed in 1993, fixed a major flaw in Hubble's primary mirror. The Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) recorded razor-sharp images of faraway objects in relatively broad views for more than 16 years. Both instruments were returned to Earth during Hubble's last servicing mission in 2009.
Participating agencies include NASA, the Smithsonian, the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore and Lockheed Martin Electronic Systems Canada, located in Montréal.
Speakers at the event are:
-- NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, who piloted the shuttle that carried Hubble into space in 1990
-- Gen. J.R. "Jack" Dailey, USMC (Ret.), director of the National Air and Space Museum
-- John Grunsfeld, NASA's Science Mission Directorate associate administrator and astronaut on Hubble servicing missions
-- John Trauger, former WFPC2 principal investigator at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.
Seating is limited. Media who wish to attend must RSVP to [email protected] no later than 2 p.m. EDT, April 22. Parking will not be available at the museum.
A recording of the event will air on NASA-TV April 23. For more information on times, visit:

WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing thes...

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
