New! The Real Future of Space Exploration
1 session, 2 hours
The 1970’s were the golden years for the US space program. We had moon landings and plans for Mars. None of these are planned now. What’s the future of NASA and private ventures?
Instructor: Bob graduated with a BS in Electrical Engineering from Rensselaer and an MSEE from the University of Connecticut. He began his career in electronic warfare at United Aircraft but eventually turned to design of spacecraft for humanitarian purposes at NASA. Bob likes to say; “Engineering made the dough, Cosmology makes me go.” His courses require no math or formal scientific training, but a good sense of humor is mandatory. Bob believes that starting a class with good jokes improves the learning process. Bob’s other passion is rock climbing, having traveled around the U.S. and Europe in its pursuit.
