May 25, 2017 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am
“The Golden Age of Planetary Exploration”
We are honored and delighted to welcome Dr. John Casani as our guest speaker. Starting in 1956 as an electronics engineer on some of the nation’s earliest spacecraft, he rose through a series of technical and management positions to Chief Engineer of the Caltech Jet Propulsion Laboratory, with broad management oversight for the Laboratory’s technical activities.
During his long and illustrious career, Dr. Casani has served in many capacities on a wide variety of space exploration projects, manned and unmanned. Up until his retirement five years ago, he was routinely awarded the most prestigious honors in his field, including the Air and Space Museum Trophy for Lifetime Achievement in 2009. You won’t want to miss this unique opportunity to hear from the man who has spent his life taking us to the stars!
