Press Release: Space Remembrance Day Observance
Saturday 31 January, 3-5pm SL time
We’ll begin with a discussion of NASA’s Astronaut Remembrance Day and the tragedies that brought it about (Apollo 1, Challenger, Columbia). Then we’ll broadening our perspective to include others who have lost their lives to our dreams of space, such as ground crew, test pilots, commercial ventures and such. The recent space failures like Virgin Galactic and what that means for commercial space will be discussed, and how all of the risks vs. rewards affect our human ventures into space moving forward.
