Exploración del Espacio

New Mexico’s Century of Leadership in Space Exploration

By Emily Aragon [ Thu Jan 17 2013 2:00 PM ]

In 1930, Robert H. Goddard relocated to Roswell, New Mexico where he spent 15 years testing and launching 31 different rockets. So began the history of rocketry in our great state. For the last 83 years, dedicated and talented engineers, scientists, mathematicians, researchers, and civilians have made strides in space emergencies, UFO research, human spaceflight development and beyond. Loretta Hall, award-winning space ambassador and author of Out of This World: New Mexico’s Contributions to Space Travel, will be giving a presentation on New Mexico's contributions to the world of space exploration over the last century, and the exciting continuation of these efforts through Spaceport America. The lecture is free and open to the public, and copies of Hall's book will be available for purchase. Old San Ysidro Church, Corrales • Thu Jan 17 • 7 pm • FREE • View on Alibi calendar
