EM Logo5ExecutiveGov is part of Executive Mosaic’s portfolio of media properties and serves its executive audience by covering stories focused on federal agencies, U.S. foreign policy and each branch of government.
The website published a number of stories this week including a piece about NASA doing stem cell research on the International Space Station.
Using the microgravity environment, scientists can study non-embryonic stem cell properties.
NASA intends for space-based cell studies to find out how to counter the impact of microgravity on human health such as bone loss and muscle atrophy, as well as to seek cures for the elderly suffering from similar cases.

Chuck Hagel, U.S. Defense Secretary, says the U.S. intends to sell weapons to the Gulf Cooperation Council as a block rather than individually.
The defense secretary would like to consolidate the U.S. missile defense systems into GCC’s weapons.
The U.S. is also expanding its fifth fleet in Bahrain under a $580 million program.
“This is a natural next step in improving U.S.-GCC collaboration and it will enable the GCC to acquire critical military capabilities, including items for ballistic missile defense, maritime security and counterterrorism,” Hagel said.
Executive Mosaic is a leader in connecting Capital-area executives through exclusive events and media, with a particular focus on the federal government contracting (GovCon) industry.
In addition to weaving a fabric of private like-minded communities, the company’s growing cross-media platform serves as a leading source of news on the people, policies, trends and events shaping the GovCon sector.
