AIAA LA-LV Online Talent Show is cleared for liftoff! 16 May, 6pm PDT
THE FIRST EVER AIAA LA-LV ONLINE TALENT SHOW
Zoom Webinar,16 May 2019, 6-8 pm (free)

Special Guest Star – Olivia Rox
 
Olivia Rox will perform a song or two from her chart-climbing album “Pop Rox.” This charming young woman, an American Idol Top 10, has an AMAZING voice! Catch her weekly, live from her living room, in the QuaranTUNE Sessions with song, interviews, and other fun diversions. And see her this Saturday, as the Special Guest Star for the first-ever AIAA LA-LV Talent Show!
 

Join us on a Zoom Webinar talent show as your aerospace colleagues
entertain you with music, song, art, poetry, and real-time CAD modeling

Hosted by Dan Raymer, the guy who wrote your aircraft design textbook.
Who knew that he can sing and play guitar….or can he?

Featuring famous Mars enthusiast Robert Zubrin – a poet and we didn’t
know it.

Hear Casey on a Native American flute, and Charlie doing a 1704
composition on recorder. That’s like a flute, not a tape recorder. You
knew that.

See the fantastic hummingbird and Space Shuttle photography of Michelle,
better known as an X-15 expert and speaker.

Rick will sing Danny Boy. It isn’t just a movie cliche, but a very
beautiful song.

Even we aren’t sure what a “Family-Friendly Alien Encounter” is, but
we’ll soon find out!

And don’t miss Max, the young-Sheldon of aerospace CAD design!

Help us chose the winners – the best three and the very worst all get a
prize.

If the show is any good, you can say “I was there for the first.” Just
like Woodstock. If it is really bad you can leave the auditorium and
nobody will know. But if you throw tomatoes, you’ll have to clean your
screen.

SEE YOU THERE!
