I actually work on the JWST program at Space Park, so I would
like to help work this issue for ISDC.  Yes, you are correct
there has been some limited tours made for the JWST, in fact we
currently have a full scale display mock-up onsite in the
facility (it is huge!!), and we do have a few limited tours
occuring.  However, because of our schedule, we will be moving
the mock-up to another site, and closing down much of the view
areas because we will start to have production hardware in those
areas.  By the time ISDC occurs in May, we may not have any
public tours available at all, because by that time most of the
areas will need to be under containment at production level
clean room standards, and I think that it may be too much to ask
NGST for tours.  However, we might be able to schedule something
for certain groups, but that would probably be on a case by case
basis.  I am working with Sally Koris about other issues dealing
with AIAA, in fact I just talked with her earlier today.  I will
start a diologe with her about this issue, which I think that
she would be favorable towards.  On this same topic I currently
have Greg Davidson speaking for me at an AIAA dinner event on
November 30th next week, he is the NGST Deputy Program Manager
for the James Webb Space Telescope.  I have attached a flyer for
the event for those of you that may be interested in attending,
and maybe we can talk with him about ISDC related issues.
