     Media are invited to witness NASA's vision for the Next 
Generation Internet, expected to be a thousand times faster than 
today's.  These and other innovations that will become the 
products of tomorrow will be on display at Technology 2007, the 
eighth annual National Technology Transfer Conference, at the 
Hynes Convention Center, Boston, MA, Sept. 22-24.  Attendees also 
can don 3D glasses and view a monster 17-foot long panorama of the 
Martian landscape taken by the Mars Pathfinder mission.

     Technology 2007 gives U.S. companies access to the hottest 
inventions developed by NASA and the other federal labs so they 
can develop a whole range of new products with down-to-Earth uses.  
NASA offers access to its 11,000 scientists and engineers to 
partner with companies in their R&D efforts.  Products like the 
pacemaker, car design software ... even an MRI ... all came from 
NASA technology.

     Convention attendees can explore 80,000 square feet of the 
latest technology innovations emanating from NASA, federal 
laboratories, their contractors, state organizations, universities 
and private companies at the annual business event.  It will be 
held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m, EDT, Sept. 22-23 and from 10 a.m. to 3 
p.m. on Sept. 24.  Media representatives can reach NASA personnel 
at the convention by pager at 1-800-417-0968.  For registration 
information, please call 508-790-3200.

     Demonstration of a new Internet -- a thousand times faster 
and more reliable than today's -- for 21st century researchers is 
the subject of a plenary session speech to be given by NASA's 
Christine Falsetti.  More information can be obtained on the
