Dr.Naderi canceled his travelto IRAN

Dr.Firouz Naderi , Send a message to Iranian people after he canceled his travel to Iran beacuse of some technichal problem in one of the JPL mission to Mars

Here Is the text of his letter to Iranian People:

 

After 27 years I was looking forward with great excitement to my visit to Iran
not only to see my family but also to interact with the young people of Iran
and the great academic organizations in Tehran and Shiraz.  I have been
overwhelmed by the response and the generosity of people with whom I have
interacted to organize this trip including students, university professors and
members of the media.  However, life does not always turn out as you wish it.
A work related obligation has unexpectedly emerged (dealing with the spacecraft
that is approaching Mars) that requires me to stay in Los Angles and therefore
postpone my trip.

I would like to express my gratitude to a number of people who invested
much of their valuable time planning and organizing this trip.  They include
Professor Vafai of Sharif University, Professor Modarres of Tehran University
and Professors Riazi and Barati of Shiraz University.  I also owe a debt of gratitude
to a number of superb science journalists primarily Mr. Babak Amin Tafrishi editor
in chief of the Nojume magazine, Mr. Pouria Nazemi of Jam-e-Jam daily and
Mr. Siavosh Safarian of TV channel 4 who tended to every detail of this trip.

I hope to see all of you soon.  You all touched my heart with your generosity
toward me.


My best wishes,

Firouz Naderi

ِDr Naderi Back to his homeland

Before all I apologize for bad writing in English but I thought that may be it can help me to improve my language.

After 27 years Dr.Firouz Naderi, JPL's associate director for programs, project formulation and strategy, will back to his homeland, Iran.

Dr.Firouz Nadery - Copy right : JPL

It is really surprising for any one who knows Dr.Naderi and his important role JPL Mars program and specially MER project.

In 2004 When SCIENCE Magazine announced top 10 scientific news, Discoveries of “Spirit” and “Opportunity” placed in the first place because of they prove that Mars has wet past and in the two site that these legendry robot are exploring, there are strong evidences of ancient liquids water.

They planed for only 3 month operation but after 2 earth years and one martin year they are continuing their mission and it is not far of truth if we name them as most successful mission in the JPL history.

Most of the credit of this successful belongs to Mars Exploration Program Manager who had mange Origins Program before that in JPL.

Firouz Naderi now improves his managing to all robotic missions in all around the Solar System and beyond.

Now Iran host Dr.Naderi, after 27 years. He will travel to Iran for some family reasons but in this short time he put few public lectures in his schedule. Also Press conference in Tehran and Shiraz and few visits from scientific center in Tehran.

This visit is a great chance for Iranian people and specially Astronomy and Space fans they can see how a great manager at NASA works and how he improves knowledge of Mankind.

Firouz Naderi won many Prizes like Ellis Island, NASA Distinguished Service Medal and Outstanding Leadership Medal, the Space Technology Hall of Fame Medal and the Liberal Prize from an Italian foundation, awarded to an international personality who has "contributed profound changes in ideas in modern times." 2 years before him Cardinal Ratziner received this prize. He is now Pope Benedict XVI.

I hope that we use this chance and people use his public lecture.

His news and programs will published on Nojum Website at www.nojum.ir .

يک روز بد

امروز اتفاقی که اميدوار بوديم نيفتد افتاد و ژرونده ايران به شورای امنيت گزارش شد و در پی ان عکس العمل هايی از سوی ايران اجرا شد .

اين يکی از مواردی است که دانش و علم و فناوری با سياست عجين شده است. مديريت علمی در بخش عمده ای از ماهيت خود نيازمند تدبير و آينده نگری همه جانبه است.

اگر ديروز البرداعی موقعيت پرونده را دشوار و نه بحرانی تصوير می کرد اکنون ديگر وضعيت بحرانی است اما هنوز به پايان دنيا نرسيده ايم.

بپذيريم اگر خرد بر احساسات غلبه کند و منطق و منافع جانشين هيجان زدگی شود می توان از ميانه اين طوفان به سلامت بيرونآمد. امروز هر تصميمی که دانشمندان و مديران ما بگيرند با سرنوشت همه ما گره خواهد خورد .

دعا کنيم  آنچه گفته ميشود و عمل می شود ختم به خير شود.

ای کاش در دنيايی بوديم که عقل و خرد حکم می راند و هيچ کس مجبور به موضع گيری غير علمی نمی شد.
