May NSA Club Meeting

  • Arlington Heights Memorial Library 500 North Dunton Avenue Arlington Heights, IL, 60004 United States (map)

Kent Nebergall of the Mars Society will discuss human planetary expeditions. After four decades of limited launch capability, the U.S. is at the threshold of having three major systems, with two of them being highly affordable.  Are we ready?  There are also serious issues that may hamstring the next space technology revolution.  How will this new space age compare to our dreams from the late Apollo Era?
