Riding the Wave, New Space Defined
Guest Speaker: Rick Tumlinson

Rick Tumlinson, our guest speaker, is the co-Founder of the Space Frontier Foundation and Orbital Outfitters and a prominent space activist. He has testified on space-related topics before the U.S. Congress six times since 1995. In 2004, Space News magazine listed Tumlinson as one of the 100 most influential people in the space industry, stating: “Part agitator, part operator, Tumlinson has spent the past two decades advocating human exploration and settlement of the solar system and has been a strong advocate of creating commercial opportunities at the Russian Mir space station and at the international space station.”
We’ll also be commemorating the 41st anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. We’ll be going for dinner after the Meet Up at a nearby restaurant ( location: TBD).
Time
6:30 – 7:45 pm.
