DARPA LuncheonSpace Shuttle Engineers' Panel
March Technical Luncheon
Saturday, March 19, 2016
11:30 AM to 3:00 PM
Development of the Space Shuttle, AKA the Space Transportation System or STS was one of the aerospace milestones of the 20th Century.
The engineers on this panel are typical of the thousands of professionals who designed and developed the STS configuration. The STS major systems were: An orbiter, an external fuel & oxidizer tank, solid rocket boosters (SRB's), and three main engines (SSME's). The orbiter's large payload bay and lift capacity enabled the International Space Station (ISS), delivered & rescued the Hubble Space Telescope, and provided access to space to over 350 astronauts. The STS flew 135 missions with two spectacularly tragic failures. Come hear the stories of 5 to 7 of the engineers whose professionalism enabled so many of our
achievements in space during the 23 year operational life of the STS.
Location & Details:
This event will be in the Columbia Memorial Center in Downey, CA, adjacent to the home of the STS orbiter. Museum tours and networking start at 11:30 and the buffet lunch starts at noon, A brief Aerospace Legacy Foundation membership meeting will precede the presentation which starts at 1:00pm.
