ISEC Lecture Series: The Evolution of The Space Shuttle
July 28, 2019 @ 2:00 am - 4:00 pm
The dream of a winged, reusable spacecraft is as old as spaceflight itself. During the 60’s and early 70’s engineers struggled to realize that vision, and worked to overcome the practical engineering and financial realities. We will trace the evolution of the Space Shuttle from those early ideas and see how NASA dealt with difficult compromises to create the Shuttle we know of today.
Frank O’Brien, NASA Solar System Ambassador is presenting.
