NASA’s Roadmap to Tomorrow’s Missions with NASA Administrator Charles Bolden
Start Date: 4/18/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 4/18/2014
Event Description:
This lecture will be held at 2:45 p.m. on April 18, 2014.

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden will discuss America’s space program and the challenges the agency faces for the missions of tomorrow. Using a stepping stone approach that builds on the capabilities of our nation’s unique orbiting laboratory – the International Space Station – the growing abilities of commercial providers to reach space, and a new rocket and crew vehicle to travel to deep space, NASA is extending human reach into the solar system even as its amazing science missions are rewriting textbooks about our universe.

The agency currently has spacecraft speeding toward Jupiter and Pluto and roving on Mars, and is searching for planets that could potentially harbor life beyond our solar system. An unprecedented mission to capture and redirect an asteroid to an orbit near to Earth is in the planning stages, and the Space Launch System and Orion Crew Vehicle are in development to take astronauts to the asteroid and on to Mars. In a time of fiscal austerity, the agency’s strategic approach will continue to achieve the big milestones that no one else can attempt.

This lecture is now on a waitlist and registration is closed. Thank you for your interest!

Doors open at 2:30 p.m., lecture begins at 2:45 p.m.
