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

Bobby Shew and John Proulx jazz up Disney
When the folks who book the Music in Corrales series approached Grammy-nominated, world-traveling jazz trumpeter Bobby Shew to open their 25th anniversary season, Shew was happy to accept. First of all, no flying: He can practically walk from his house to Old San Ysidro Church in Corrales, where the concerts are held. Second, he could work with Grammy-winning L.A. pianist/vocalist/composer John Proulx (rhymes with Shew) again. The two of them established a good rapport when they fronted a tribute to Chet Baker for the series a couple of years back, and they could team up once more with bassist Michael Glynn and drummer Cal Haines. But what to play?
