SPECIAL LOCATION! Our December program will take place on Thursday, December 5 at 7 pm, at Gray Research Auditorium. 655 Discovery Drive in Research Park.
SLS Program Manager, Todd May, will present "Space Launch System, The Next Great Ship."
When explorers of old set sail in wooden ships to explore the unknown reaches of the ocean, it was important that their vessels were robust enough to keep them safe, and capable enough to allow them to conduct voyages that stretched from the tropics to the Antarctic. Today, NASA's Space Launch System carries forward that legacy as the next great ship that offers the robustness and capability to support a wide variety of missions to diverse destinations on the new ocean of space.
Designed to take advantage of NASA's proven heritage of success in human spaceflight and the latest in modern technology, Space Launch System is moving rapidly toward its first launch in four year as the world's most powerful launch vehicle. SLS Program Manager, Todd May will explain how the program, based at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, is carrying the torch of a grand heritage of exploration for a new generation.
The event will take place at ManTech NeXolve / Gray Research Auditorium, 655 Discovery Dr. in Huntsville. The event is free and open to the public. A social will take place after the meeting at IHOP on University Drive. Special thanks to ManTech NeXolve for arranging the use of the auditorium.
