Space Commercialization: AIAA LA LV Participation in Jan. 22 LAEDC / CSUDH panel event
Several of the AIAA Los Angeles – Las Vegas Council Members attended the Space Commercialization panel event on Jan. 22. It was hosted by CSUDH and LAEDC.
The speakers/panelists talked about very interesting things related to the Space Commercialization. What they said matched very well with the vision, mission, and activities that #AIAA and the #LA-LV Section have / have been doing.
Mr. Whitesides mentioned X-15 and indicated he could elaborate more on it if needed, as that’s an important technology led to several modern day aerospace technologies / businesses, like those used in Virgin Galactic and Virgin Orbit. X-15 has been an important program for the AIAA LA-LV Section for many years. And we will have an #X-15 & #MikeAdams event on Jan. 30, 2020 (https://conta.cc/2LNY7p8). And we had speakers / astronauts from #VirginGalactic on May 9 Annual Awards Dinner (http://goo.gl/pqtgB9) and Nov. 23 Space Tourism (https://conta.cc/2B5dhAa) events.
