All students/faculty are invited to a presentation on the NASA Orion Project. Orion, a Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle, is a planned beyond-low-earth-orbit manned spacecraft that is being built by Lockheed Martin for NASA for crewed missions to the Moon, asteroids and Mars. It is planned to be launched by the Space Launch System.
NASA will plan on having two UW alum (Howard Hu, Deputy of the Orion Vehicle Integration Office and Nujoud Merancy, Orion Systems Engineer) on hand to give a presentation and answer questions with students and professors from across the university. They will talk about what’s in store for NASA’s Orion Program going forward. NASA has an exciting test flight in 2014 that they will be able to talk about as well as how their education at Univ of Wash helped get them to where they are today.
Students and faculty from all disciplines are invited to attend the event.
