The Huntsville Alabama L5 Society (HAL5)'s August free public talk will take place on 2nd Thursday, August 11 at 7 pm at the Huntsville-Madison County Main Library Main Auditorium. In preparation for our inaugural Power Grid Defense Conference on September 20-21, 2016 at the Huntsville Marriott, Mr. Greg Allison will be making a case for "The Power Grid Defense Case: To Enable the Settlement of Space?" He will also give us a glimpse of the event, and how important it is in all aspects of our life.

The Achilles heel of our modern world is our power grid. Today we are so dependent upon it that its loss could end civilization as we know it. Unfortunately the probability of this is very high if we do nothing. The threats to the grid range from terrorist activities, solar Coronal Mass Ejections (CME), to nuclear generated Electromagnetic Pulses (EMP). The chances are this could rob us of our ability to develop and settle space. Come see what you can do to prevent this and enable our future in space.

The event is FREE and open to the public. A social will follow the program. For upcoming talks, please check out our Upcoming Events page.
