Western New York and the Other Space Race with NRO Director Dr. Chris Scolese

When:  Sep 17, 2020 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (ET)
Associated with  Niagara Frontier Section
Join the Niagara Frontier Section for this webinar with Dr. Chris Scolese, Director, National Reconnaissance Office (NRO).

The NRO is the U.S. agency responsible for launching and operating our spy satellites. Though established in August 1960, its operations are so highly classified that the very existence of the organization was not declassified until 1992. Please join us via Zoom this month when Dr. Chris Scolese, Director of the NRO and University at Buffalo Engineering class of 1978, discusses the pivotal role played by Western New York in his agency’s history.

Prior to being selected to head the NRO Dr. Scolese had a long career with NASA. His previous positions included Goddard Space Flight Center Director, Acting Administrator, and Chief Engineer.
