What does it take to leave Earth? Come learn about the concepts of defeating Earth’s gravity and launching into Space as presented by former Lockheed Martin engineer, Mr. Stephen Kelly.
This talk will begin with the scientists and innovators who contributed to the technical abilities required for space flight, including Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, Herman Oberth, and Robert Goddard. Also covered will be the current propulsion methods for space launch boosters, which have advanced over the years.
