Our March event will be on Thursday, March 6, 7 pm at the Huntsville - Madison County Main library Auditorium. Our guest speaker is Mr. Ben Donahue, R and D Principal Investigator at Boeing. Mr. Donahue will be speaking to us about "Missions for NASA's New Space Launch System (SLS) Rocket."
The new Space Launch System (SLS), the heavy lift launcher that is to replace the Space Shuttle, will be able to boost very large payloads to a variety of deep space destinations. The largest, and most powerful rocket ever constructed, the SLS will enable exciting, new space exploration missions for both crew and cargo. The SLS's capabilities to destinations such as the Moons of Jupiter (Europa), the Moons of Saturn (Titan), Uranus, Mars, the Moon and other exciting targets will be presented along with descriptions of the rockets elements. The SLS' first launch is scheduled for 2017.
The event is free and open to the public. Please see HAL5 News and Calendar page for more upcoming events.
