We have a special treat for you all. On Wednesday, March 18, HAL5 and USSRC
are co-hosting a special Pass the Torch talk at the USSRC's National
Geographic Theater (a.k.a. the Davidson Center Auditorium/Theater) with NASA Orion
Program Manager Mark Geyer and Lockheed Martin's Orion Program Manager and
VP Mike Hawes. Mr. Geyer and Mr. Hawes will be talking to us about the
recent successful test flight of Orion spacecraft on top the locally
built Delta IV Heavy, lessons learned and what's upcoming up on Space
Launch System (SLS)'s first test flight in a few years.
The event will start at 5:30 pm. The event is FREE and open to the public.
More information coming soon. In the mean time, here are some information about Orion EFT-1

HAL5 monthly program in April: To Be Announced
HAL5 monthly program on "Cosmology and the Expansion of the Universe: from Edwin Hubble to the Hubble Space Telescope" with
Dr. Massimiliano (Max) Bonamente, Professor of Physics, UAH.
Cosmology is as old as mankind. Since ancient times, people wondered
about the Universe, when it all began, if and when it will all end. The
most impressive and somewhat unexpected discovery happened in the early
XX century, with the discovery by Edwin Hubble (and others) that the
Universe is actually expanding, opening up the question of "when did the
Universe begin?" Cosmology has made much progress through the past
century, and that includes other very unexpected conclusions that most
of the matter in the Universe is "dark", and that most of the energy is
also "dark" - meaning we know they are there, but we can't see them.
Figuring out the fate of the Universe can be very confusing, difficult
and frustrating, but cosmology remains the oldest and arguably most
fascinating of sciences.
For a third year in a row, HAL5 was awarded the NSS Chapter Excellence Award for Education Outreach. Special thanks to our members, supporters and attendees of our monthly programs to HAL5 one of the most active chapter in NSS! Thank you!
Once again, we are the best chapter in NSS! At the 2011 ISDC in Huntsville, HAL5 was awarded
the NSS Chapter of the Year award for 2010! Thank you, our
members and guests, and HAL5 officers for making this possible.
